Expand Your Opportunities

Have you ever wished you could put an SSD or 2nd HDD in your laptop, because you are feeling that the boot times and data access becomes more and more slowly or you have realized that you have far too much data to fit on your 1st regular HDD inside your laptop? By putting an IB-AC642 in your optical bay, you can add a SSD or second hard drive to your computer.


Adding a solid state drive to your system can make it significantly faster, from decimating the boot times to speeding up application launch and data access or storing all of your large files on a 2nd regular hard drive.

With flash drives, online streaming video, and downloadable software installs becoming more popular, many users find themselves using the CD/DVD drive less and less, so replacing it with an SSD or 2nd HDD can be a good investment. Furthermore, in the rare cases that you do need access to optical media; you can always plug in your old DVD drive externally by using the enclosed external
