SSD in Optical Drive Bay
Can I replace my optical drive on this mac with an SSD? I'm not sure if the optical drive is SATA or not? I saw some web pages mentioning PATA drives, which would mean my SSD (which I'd want to boot from) would be slower?
I'm assuming the process would be similar to upgrading the optical bay to an SSD on a MBP?
It's all SATA on your model. Here's what you'll need to do this: 12.7 mm SATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure
