Hi Guys and Girls, can anyone confirm if the Early 15" Macbook Pro SATA is 6GBs?
S-ATA 6.0 Gbps (S-ATA III)
It is, but don't put a SATA III SSD in the optical bay. There have been problems with SATA III SSDs in the optical bay in these machines.
Thanks guys, Great WWW site for Apple Specs, i've bookmarked it, of course.
On all of them it is SATA III on the HDD bay, as for the ODD bay, it is hit or miss. I have one of the first ones released and I only have SATA II on the ODD (which is perfectly fine for an ODD and most HDDs).
SATA II is perfectly fine for all mechanical HDDs and many SSDs. It will bottleneck the current SATA III solid state drives though.
I seem to remember in the first few months of production it was a gamble.
The initial releases only had SATA II in the ODD connection??
Or was this only on the 13inch model ??
I tend to agree with that, but with HDDs now sporting the SATA III, I had to say most (even then I believe it would be hard to saturate even a SATA III HDD) and most people are buying only SATA III SSDs these days, so I just dumbed it down a bit.
