    as i don't need the odd i wanted to ask you guys if there is any harm done by just removing it and leaving the space empty.

    or are there any dummies for the mbp 13" odd?

    You can replace it with a second hard drive or use it to add a SSD in addition to the hard drive. However, if you don't want to do that, I'd probably just leave it in there. The open slot into the computer is just an invitation for all sorts of dust, which is terrible for the computer.

    i don't need the extra space. the main purpose is to reduce the weight. i know the odd does not weight too much, but still, the last time i used a odd was about 4 years ago.

    anyone know a dummy that i can use?
