The new MCE OptiBay Hard Drive replaces your machine's internal SuperDrive with a high performance hard drive up to 500GB and is compatible with unibody MacBooks.

-----
The new MCE OptiBay Hard Drive was created for users who want as much hard drive space as possible inside their MacBook Pro, MacBook, or PowerBook G4... period. The MCE OptiBay Hard Drive replaces your machine's internal SuperDrive with a high performance hard drive up to 500GB... or get just the OptiBay Hard Drive enclosure and use your own 2.5" SATA hard drive. Now you can have unheard of capacities in laptop disk storage space for everything you need to store... digital video, music, photos, etc.

Two bootable hard drives inside your system provide a freedom and flexibility never before experienced in a Mac laptop... have one disk a scratch disk and the other your system/applications disk, RAID configurations, one disk Mac and the other PC, extra photo storage for digital photographers, extra music storage for digital DJ's, and more.


Plus, you have the option of including an external SuperDrive or optical drive enclosure for your removed SuperDrive or Combo drive so you'll still have CD/DVD read/write functionality anytime you want for loading system software or applications, as well as burning, playing, or ripping CDs and DVDs!
-----

The OptiBay enclosure with no hard drive costs $129. You can choose to have various size hard drives included with the enclosure. For example, the enclosure and a 500GB hard drive costs $249.
