    Default changing the cd drive to a ssd?

    i have a mid 2010 macbook, it is the white unibody one. not a macbook pro
    i was wondering if im able to change the cd drive to a ssd? im wanting to change my 250gig hd to a 750gig ssd and add another ssd in the cd drive. is it doable? i saw the vid on the DJTT youtube page, but thats a mbp not a normal macbook. would it work for a normal macbook?

    Looks like the 2010 Macbook is compatible with the same drive enclosure as the MBP:

    Find one of those that's less overpriced.

    in your opinion would it be best to upgrade to a macbook pro ( newest with all the stock crap ) , or go with a 960GB Crucial M500 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s 9.5mm SSD , 16.0GB (8.0GB + 8.0GB Kit) ram , and in the optic drive 480GB Crucial M500 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s 9.5mm SSD. all in a late 2010 macbook?

    Unless you actually need that much storage+ when you are on the road I'd go with 2 x Smaller SSD's in a new (refurb) Macbook Pro (256gb each) and then use a Mirrored Raid external for your bog standard bulk storage and backups.

    What are you actually going to be doing on your laptop that warrants so much ultra fast storage ?
