    I remember reading somewhere that you could put a second harddrive where the optical drive is? Does anyone have experience with this? Also, how big of an SSD do I need for it to be a good boot and applications disk? is 32gb enough?

    The size of the SSD depends on the applications you want to install. 32GB might be enough, but some applications need a lot of supporting data for templates and "stuff".

    And have a look around the forum for OPTIBAY via MRoogle, it is covered in dozens of threads.

    The size of the SSD depend on how much apps do you have. 32GB may be enough if you don't have a lot apps but I would get at least 60GB so you don't have to think what you install all the time. Besides, you shouldn't fill it too much or it will slow down.

    Thanks for pointing that out. The first question by the OP:
    The second question by the OP, though it ties into the first question:
    Here is an answer someone anonymously provided:
    The answer contains two links, one to a provider of optibays, the other to a search tool, helping the OP to find the dozens of existing threads about that.


    And then there is your answer:
    At least you weren't helpful. Or smug as I am.

    If you mean my second post, it was not aimed at you, but at the other poster claiming there has been no answer to your first question, while there were two.
    And why was that poster laughing? S/he didn't even provide any information regarding your questions.

    Anyway, hope you found some answers.
