Apple Mac Pro Tower PCI SSD Upgrade Options

Replacing or adding a hard drive to a Mac Pro tower has always been ridiculously easy: First with the dual G5 model's open extra drive bay with mounting screws at the ready -- It really is just plug and play. Then in subsequent Mac Pros Apple provided 4 drive upgradability -- as easy as just pushing a standard form factor 3.5" SATA drive into the slot. With an affordable ICY DOCK 2.5" to 3.5" case installing a laptop size SSD in a Pro Macintosh takes about 1 minute.
