Hey.

I found a really good deal on a 120 GB SSD. I want to use it on my 2010 MBP 13.3 inch. The thing is, is that it's not enough space. Is there anyway I can put two of them into my laptop without removing my Disk Drive? The one I am looking at is a OCZ Vertex Plus R2 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive w/ 3Gbps Interface.

There is only one way to fit the SSD and keep your existing HD, but that involves removing the optical drive. You can buy a carrier for your HD is the shape of the optical drive, it mounts using the same 3 screws. I've seen some eBay suppliers selling the carrier and an empty external USB case to take the redundant optical drive.

I just looked up what you are suggesting but I don't know what name to look it up under. Any suggestions?

I did find it. Thank you! I know OWC is a good brand, but whatever gets the job done is all I need.
