Replaces the DVD drive to add a second internal hard drive to your MacBook Pro. Only affects battery life by 10-15% and can spin the second drive down when not in use. Useful if you need added capacity.

I called; they said they do not and will not sell the drive bay separately. Bummer! The guy I talked to also said that as far as he knows, 160gb is the largest PATA drive available - only the SATA drives go higher. I was hoping for a 200gb 7200rpm SATA and a 250gb 5400rpm PATA. D'oh

Well opening up a mac book pro to install a hd will void your warranty. If I take the drive to the apple store and paid someone to do it for me then will my warranty still be valid?

I doubt they'd do that until the warranty was up anyway. You could always call and check.

if the people from that service (the website) do it then they may be trained so that it doesnt affect the warrenty.

but yes you would have to check.
