My boot times aren't much better because before they'd run on the SSD section of the Momentus that was there before.
I have read about the optical drive area replacement kits, just never went that route. I may consider it... I have to use an external for all my photos as they take up some serious space.. but a 256 GB SSD and a 320 GB Regular Drive would be okay for a while.
Yah I previously had interest in the Seagate Hybrid drives, but heard some problems on Macs.
The reason why I opted for the SSD/HD optibay solution was because I couldn't afford a 500gb SSD and 256gb was not large enough for all my files. Yah, I think it's the photos for me as well.
