    Hello

    I have checked specification for this Portege and cannot find info about this kind of upgrade.

    In the past Toshiba has offered several different notebook models with separate “SelectableBay HDD adaptor” and instead of ODD it was possible to put second HDD. Unfortunately I think it is not available for this Portege.

    Have you tried to find some info about this?

    Hi Keany,

    thanks for your quick repsonse.
    the manual i got with the r700 is very poor. It doesnt even mention the mobile connectivity and the SIM-card slot .
    so i concluded that such a feature would be missing as well.
    The SelectableBay HDD adaptor offered by toshiba cannot be used with the r700

    As I wrote before this select bay was offered for certain notebook models and was not offered as some kind of “universal” bay that can be used on all Toshiba notebooks.

    Sorry but I think such upgrade is not possible.
