New Macbook lol
So my company is sorta giving everyone bonuses because things have been flying along. We all got new $250 Bose headsets and 2 of the other developers got new IMacs but my boss knows I have no room on my desks for another full size computer right now so he just handed me a new 13" macbook Pro. Not exactly my thing since I prefer my PC but i'll just toss Windows 7 Ultimate on it and call it a day.

Anyone know if this thing has room for an SSD as well as the hard drive in it?

2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i7
Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
8GB 1600MHz memory
750GB 5400-rpm hard drive
Intel HD Graphics 4000

I can exchange it for a brand new $ 500 Dell if you want...... ( what a deal, what a deal)

it only has 1 drive bay unless you use the opti-bay thingy (just google it).

Depending on how much you tinker, Windows in BootCamp is NOT Windows as you know it. Take it from someone who's been bootcamping for 2 years.

Yes Windows not good on boot camp, your fine on a Dell...... ( Mac Air more than half price, what a deal)

Another apple poop. And why 8gb ram if there is not GPU? is it a laptop for intensive CPU applications? :X i give my old keyboard for it.

Typically there is only one drive slot on a Macbook. So no there is no room for an SSD unless you take out the hard drive. Which is surprisingly easy since I recently did an upgrade on my old 2009 Macbook.

you can pull out the optical drive, insert a caddy and do HDD/SSD.

This. You can find adapters on OWC or on eBay.
