I've just replaced my MacBook Pro's optical drive with an SSD. I used OWC's Data Doubler kit. I've moved my OS and all my data onto the SSD, and I'm now using it as my boot volume.
In other threads, some people have swapped the positions of the drives, so that the HDD is installed where the optical drive was, and the SSD is installed at the HDD's original location.
Is there any good reason to do this? Does it matter where the SSD drive is installed? In particular, would this configuration have any impact on battery life?
