Title:

What is the maximum size HDD can I fit into my 2010MBP?

Text:

Hi everyone!

First of all, I know that my mid 2010 15" Macbook Pro takes a 2.5" upto 9.5mm drive (12mm also fits but not reccomnded) and my SATA connector speed is 3GB/s and supports 6GB/s which are backwards compatible.

And I know this question has been asked so many times before but they are outdated now and new HDD models hit the market since then.

So the question is, will my MBP handle a 1TB HDD in main bay and another 1TB (or less) in optibay?

Some people say that the max is 1TB total, others say it's 4TB. Also heard that optibay max is 750GB.

Which one is true you guys? I've never popped my MBP open befor so I don't want to fall into the abyss doing so.

Note: I've seen this [http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT2422|webpage] but not quite sure if its relative or not.
