    bah, if you really want to impress the ladies, you'll replace your hard drive with a second optical drive. that would be awesome.

    Yep, running it right now. It took about 20 minutes to install using the OptiBay. It only took that long because I was extremely methodical and careful.

    This computer is a powerhouse now....:eek:

    It wasn't hard to do? I remember reading that taking out the optical drive in a MB was fairly difficult and that there were a lot of screws involved, etc.

    This is something I'd like to do but I don't want to f up my MB...
