Free up a spare drive sled in the Mac Pro
Authored by: fmaxwell on Aug 09, '09 09:27:20AM

If a $29 drive sled is a lot of money, you bought the wrong computer. That's like 1% of the purchase price of the computer. I'm not going to jury-rig a physically unattached hard drive laying on felt into a $3K computer. How clever will you feel if/when the SATA connector on the backplane breaks or the drive overhead from sitting on felt and having no airflow?
