Build a 1TB MacBook

MCE's guide to storage bloat

Security for virtualized datacentres

MCE Technologies has a dual 500GB hard disk drive kit to produce 1TB MacBooks by using the SuperDrive optical disk drive bay.

The kit uses two 2.5-inch drives spinning at 5,400 or 7,200rpm and with capacities of 100, 120, 160, 250 or 500GB. One replaces the standard drive whilst the other replaces the SuperDrive optical disk drive in its bay. It connects to the MacBook's internal ATA bus and is seen by the Mac OS X operating system as just another hard drive which can be managed with Apple's Disk Utility.

The second drive can be treated as extra storage, set up as a RAID 0 (striping) or 1 (mirroring) array with the first drive, dedicated to Windows if you use Parallels or Fusion, or be a bootable copy of the primary drive by using the included BounceBack software.

All MacBooks and MacBook Pros, both 15-inch and 17-inch, are supported, as well as the PowerBook G4. An external USB or FireWire-attached SuperDrive is provided for MacBook and MacBook Pro 15-inch notebooks.

The price is a respectable $799 for the 1TB drive kit. Find out more here. MCE Technologies is based in Irvine, California.
