Hi everyone. I've been trolling the forum waiting for someone to ask the same questions as me and nobody has. I also tried googling but have come up with nothing. Thanks ahead of time for your help! I have the 2011 MacBook Pro 17" w/ 8gb ram and 750gb hd. I would like to do an intel X-25 120gb SSD Optibay upgrade but have a couple questions. I will probably install the SSD in the Optibay and run bootcamp for Mac and Windows off of the SSD unless there are issues. I will keep the stock HD and use it as storage. 1) I've read a lot about SSD sleep issues. Does this apply to the 2011 models? (does this happen only for optibay installs or for all forms of ssd installs?). I also read a post that it might be brand related. I haven't really been able to pinpoint when this is the case. I never shutdown my computer and usually just sleep it, so the mbp sleeping correctly is important to me. 2) If i can afford it should i consider buying a sata 3 capable ssd and installing that in the hd slot? 3) I have read that running bootcamp off the optibay has issues. I plan on running both Win 7 and Mac off the optibay ssd. Do the issues apply to the 2011 mbp in my situation? This laptop without SSD is honestly super fast already. I just do business stuff on it. i'm a huge lightroom 3 user but haven't gotten around to installing that as of yet. I also have insane engadget tech fever and want the best even though I don't need it. I just get jealous when people talk about how fast their ssd is.
