so just yesturday my new laptop came (clevo P150SM) and i started inspecting the laptop, I noticed that there was no second hdd bay, just one. While I had specified that I didn't want them to include a second SSD in the laptop because I have my own which i was going to install, I didn't think they wouldn't allow room for it?
Anyway, is there any way I can get the 2.5" ssd in? I've seen some people replacing the optical drive with a second hdd but I'm unsure if it'll work and i have no idea where to buy extra hdd caddies in NZ :/

freitasm: The specifications for the laptop seem to indicate these are optional.

I spoke with one of the reps, and he said there is a option to add a second hdd by replacing the optical drive by an adapter which cost $50 from them.

Just buy one of these

Or find the correct one for your laptop in these:

I used one of those in my Asus notebook and it worked well.
I moved the supplied HDD to the new optical drive bay slot (with the caddy) and put the SSD into the main/master slot.
