Damn. No way I'm going to upgrade to the 2012 13" model until this gets sorted out. My current configuration is SSD in the OptiBay and WD HDD in the main slot and I can't swap the two since the hard disk is over 9.5 mm in height.

i have the early 2011 macbook pro 15" and the link speed on the optical drive bay port is 6Gbps and negotiated to 1.5Gbps for the DVD drive..... does that mean a sata 3 SSD will not run at 6Gbps on this port?
