Is it possible to install a second INTERNAL hard drive to the Feb/08 15'' Macbook Pro?
Yes. You must take out the optical drive.
possible yes. Can you do it? not really. You need a kit (likely expensive) to install a hard drive in place of the optical drive.
What you mean by optical drive is my SuperDrive? If it is, I dont wouldnt replace it with an extra hard drive.
That's the only way you can get another hard drive in there.
Here is what it looks like inside of a 15" MBP. I took mine apart this weekend and upgraded the hardrive and replaced the left fan. Here is a pic of this
there is your only solution, that i have seen.
Here you go, this guy did it ages ago!!

I have thought about doing this but for most people, I believe the cons outweight the pros.
I thought about it too!
I just decided to lug around a bus powered BigLittle Drive instead, the FW800 is capable of more than enough bandwidth a pair of HD's can offer!
Perfect for me, though my battery does seem to die quicker - thanks god for user exchangable batteries.
..Feel sorry for MBA users.
Where else do you think you could fit another hard drive? It's not like there's an empty space in the MBP, just waiting for someone to use it for something! To put something in, you gotta take something out!
Judging from his photo, the OP did! The left cooling fan!! - not a very wise decision if he/she doesn't mind me saying.. the left side gets the hottest, the quickest!
You can't fit a HD in the same space as a cooling fan.
yeah..not only did the OP not post photos, but what you just said makes 0 sense. I'm sure on some planet your style is impressive, but your weak link is...this is EARTH.
foot in mouth. I get it.
I was replacing the left fan. It died on me. I didn't remove the fan to put a HD in that spot. I still have 2 fans in my MBP.
I had to replace my left fan also.
Which internal hard drive would you recommend by price and quality?
