    I found an optibay like deivce on ebay for $200. It includes a 500gb Seagate momentus 72000rpm hard drive. Now will this work on a 13inch macbook pro? Also does anyone have one of these type devices? How do you like them? And how hard are these to install? Can anyone recommend an external enclosure for the superdrive?

    I hope you are aware than removing the superdrive voids your warranty.

    Yeah I knew that and was thinking about it and reading reviews and have decided against doing it.

    Why would removing it void the warranty?
    Looking at ifixit, its just 2 connectors and a couple of screws holding it in
    If you have experience building computers I dont see how you could screw it up, and if required the optibay can be replaced with the superdrive prior to servicing
