Ok, you love your unibody MacBook Pro notebook, aren’t terribly attached the optical drive and the warranty isn’t that important…odds are you’re ready to hack in a second hard drive. Per this hack, a user faced the dilemma of getting the faster SSD hard drive or the larger capacity rotational drive. Instead of settling on either of those options, he removed his DVD drive, hacked together an adapter to interface with the proprietary Apple connector, and installed a second hard drive. The result is a “best of both worlds” scenario for him complete with a faster boot time and responsiveness, and plenty of space available for movies and music.
The user, who has yet to fully identify himself, posted full step by step instructions over on his blog, complete with pictures and a plug to provide the service to anyone who may want it.
Be warned, some of the language isn’t safe for work, but if you’re up for a second hard drive in your MacBook Pro at all costs, take a gander and let us know how it goes!
