Has anyone replaces their optical drives in a macbook pro with a second hard drive? I'm considering this with a SSD, for app + system.

I use Vuze and www.kat.ph.
Then download Plex for your media content, its goddamn lovely and you can watch content from your phone/tablet etc with Plex server.

Still up, the original domain is just blocked in the UK. You can get to it via https://piratereverse.info/

Or if that link is down/doesn't work at any time, there's a whole list here http://about.piratereverse.info/proxy/list.html

Private torrent sites are always better than public
what.cd for music
tvtorrents for tv
pass the popcorn for films

probably people on here with spare invites for some, I'm all out

Going to upgrade my MBP, the pricing of the retina is insane, £1500 for a laptop with 128gb hard drive? That's £500 more than the non retina version which has 500gb hard drive.
Am I missing something?

I think I'm going to wait a month as the MBP is at he end of its cycle. Any one know of the next media event?

The retina will have a solid state drive.
