    Tired of constantly carry with an external HDD, so I think put the 2-nd HDD in place of SuperDrive (model MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-898). The main problem in selecting enclosure for it. Virtually all of the shops, where I found it on sale, listed compatibility with all MBP Unibody 13 ", but when I ask for producers, with the specific issue of compatibility this MBP model, the most common response - we did not try, but it looks to be compatible.
    Maybe someone that already had occasion to conduct a similar operation (or just hear) the new MBP 13 "? Is the new model all the same as in the old unibody or what that difference is?
    Well, the question about the choice of 9.5 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure . I found the following models from different manufacturers, which is better? (Or can suggest any other day, one I missed something)

    MCE OptiBay Hard Drive
