What I would like to accomplish: Replace Optical Drive with HDD, install SSD in main HD bay.


I've done this for my self twice with both of my MacBook Pro's, and for a few friends as well. I love the convenience of having the extra storage internally connected, as well as the extra speed instead of using USB.


My latest MacBook Pro has taken a dive and I'm going to replace it, but I'm going with a PC. Adapters for MBP's are very easy to find, but I've had trouble finding them for PC laptops. Does anyone have any recommendations?


Just an FYI: currently looking at a ThinkPad T410, ASUS U47A-BGR4. and HP Folio 13-1029wm.
