iMac Dual HD, how does Apple do it with the Optical Drive?
Looking at several iFixIt articles and videos, I did not find a way to do something like what apple offers: 1 HDD, 1 SSD AND the Optical Drive.
I did find someone mentioning that when you configure your computer like that from Apple, it comes with an additional port. Is that true?
If so, would you guys happen to have an article or high-res image of such board?
Apple mounts the SSD underneath the optical drive with a proprietary bracket. All iMacs of the same generation (2011 EMC 2428 and 2429) have the extra socket on the logic board. We have a kit that uses super strong double sided tape to hold the drive in place underneath the optical drive.
