Hi guys, as you can see, I have not been here for a very long time - ever since I was camping out at the "waiting for macbook core 2 duo thread". (I got a core duo one that time ) So I'm going to get a new MBP whenever the new ones come, but I have a few questions on replacing the optical drive with another hard drive. Please bear in mind that I'm not a person very experienced in "modding" computers. (I have not even tried changing RAM on my macbook before!). - I heard stuff like "RAID 0" when changing the optical drive, what does that mean? Is is any better than normal? - Lets say I want to have an SSD to store the OSX and applications in, and a normal high capacity HDD to store data in. What order would be advisable? Eg, SSD in normal hard drive bay and HDD replacing optical drive or SSD in optical drive area and HDD in the normal hard drive bay. I guess the orders matter right? Since I guess the connection speeds for HD and optical bays are different. My priority would be to get the SSD to the faster connection. - I found this thread here. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=680228 I'm assuming that if I use this method to install the hard drive, if it was a normal one it might rattle much right? If I were to install an SSD, would this method then be variable? - Is Optibay the only commercial option I have? Anybody knows if there is a reseller or importer in my area? (Singapore). I know there is online ordering but my parents are paying, and they don't really trust online transactions and it would be a hard time convincing them. Lastly, a very very off-topic question (you were warned ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8uBuduJdA0&feature=related Found this while researching SSD v HDD, anyone knows the name of the first piece of music? Ok, that is about all. I understand that there are many questions, and I really appreciate all the help that you guys can give me even if you can answer one or two of my queries. Thanks a bunch!
