Note: This offer contains only the MCE OptiBay without the external USB Enclosure !

The MCE OptiBay was created for users who want as much hard drive capacity as possible inside their MacBook Pro, MacBook, PowerBook G4, iMac, or Mac mini. It replaces your machine's internal SuperDrive with a high performance SATA hard drive, or SSD (Solid-State Drive), of up to 1000GB.

Now you can have previously unheard of capacities and speed in laptop disk storage and space for everything you need to store... digital video, music, photos, etc.
Two bootable 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.

Your Laptop, Your Way

The OptiBay is a high performance laptop hard drive, or SSD, inside a specially designed, lightweight enclosure that's been engineered to the exact same dimensions as your laptop's SuperDrive or Combo drive. We made the case so lightweight, in fact, that replacing your optical drive with an MCE OptiBay Drive can actually shave up to a quarter pound off the weight of your MacBook Pro, MacBook or PowerBook G4! Besides just appearing different, laptop optical drives and hard drives have very different data connectors as well, so an adapter was developed allowing the hard drive or SSD to communicate with your MacBook Pro, MacBook, or PowerBook G4 through the optical drive connector on the motherboard. Since they already speak the same language, SATA, not one bit of speed or performance is lost in adapting the drive's connector.

MCE OptiBay Utlity

Included with every OptiBay is the MCE OptiBay Utlity program. This is software we created specifically for OptiBay users and allows them greater flexibility when using their, now external, SuperDrive (DVD Drive) that was removed when installing the OptiBay. The MCE OptiBay Utility program activates the Apple DVD Player application so that it can now play movie DVDs from an external SuperDrive when there is no internal SuperDrive in the system. As well, if you ever reinstall your SuperDrive back into your machine our OptiBay Utility program will allow the Apple DVD Player application to again play movie DVDs from the internal SuperDrive. The OptiBay utility program is compatible with Mac OS 10.4 through the recently released Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion). It also provides other functionality when using the OptiBay and this is fully detailed in the program and accompanying Read Me file.
