Basically the Title:
Is is possible to replace the CD drive in a 17" macbook Pro with a SSD/second HD?
I'm looking at buying a 17" MBP, and I am having a hard time deciding if I want a HD or SSD.
My MBA has a SSD, and it's very fast. However, I am already almost out of space.
My desktop (a windows box) has a SSD for the OS and often used programs, and a HD for long term storage. It works extremely well
Also, I think I have used the CD drive in my desktop about twice in two years, so I don't really need one, particularly in a laptop.
What I would Ideally like to do is simply replace the CD drive with a big HD, and use a SSD for the OS.
Is this possible? I can make up a custom bracket to hold the SSD in the CD-drive enclosure. However, I do not know what kind of interface the CD drive uses.
