I've been looking to upgrade to an SSD.
And I've read a couple of options:
- Swapping the mechanical drive for an SSD.
- Swapping the optical drive for an SSD.
My question is, is there another SATA port available on the motherboard that could be used to insert an SSD, possibly behind the existing optical drive, so you could have a total of three drives?
And is there physical space to do so?
I'd ideally have the SSD as the boot drive, the old mechanical for data, and the optical to watch the occasional film.
This post suggests that there is room in the 2011 imac 21.5 inch: https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/38040/358026 Is it still applicable here?
