SSD in optical drive
I'm planning to replace my optical drive in my mid 2012 MacBook Pro 13inch with an SSD.
Both optical and main bay are capable of 6gb (SATA III), with main bay currently at 3gb negotiated and optical and 1.5gb negotiated.
Would I be ok to put the SSD straight into the optical drive and boot off it and have my current HDD remain where it is and be a secondary storage?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Will I notice any speed difference with the SSD being in optical?
I'm worried about the HDD not having motion sensor if I put it in the optical bay.
Another alternative is getting two SSDs and running striped RAID.
Is this a good question?
