I am trying to understand the process of switching out my HDD for an SSD and then replacing my optical drive with the same HDD just removed in a late 2011 Macbook Pro 15.4".
Is there any benefit to doing this vs. just replacing the optical drive with a new SSD and leaving the HDD where it is at?
My main intent in adding a SSD is to increase the speed of my computer and not necessarily adding more space. My HDD is 750GB and I'm not even close to filing it up. I do have programs on my HDD like Microsoft Office that I don't want to lose and don't have the means of reinstalling.
Any suggestions would be great and a detailed description of how to go about this would also be greatly appreciated.
