Is it possible to use a SSD instead of my optical drive?
MacBook Pro unibody early 2009
The question is. When I remove the optical drive. Will a SSD 2,5" fits on that place? Can I use a solit state disk on the place from my optical drive.
I want to use an extra SSD for OSX and stay using my harddisk for data. I never use CD's/DVD anymore so, that would be a great solution.
Thanks in advance,
Your MacBook Pro should be one of these two models:
- MacBook Pro 17-inch 2.66GHz (MB604LL/A) Intel Core 2 Duo
- MacBook Pro 17-inch 2.93GHz (CTO) Intel Core 2 Duo
What you need is called an Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure
I can't tell if you need the 9.5 mm or the 12.7 mm till you confirm your model. Even if I can't, iFixit parts will know. Just ask them here:http://www.ifixit.com/Info/contact
