Extra Hard drives on Y710?

I am looking into purchasing an Ideapad Y710 - 40542AU, and I have a couple of questions that could help me with my purchase:


1) Although this model doesn't come with a second hard drive installed, can I install a second one myself at a later date? (i.e. does it have the additional controllers and space for another drive to be installed?)


2) It appears that the DVD drive is removable. Is the DVD slot compatible with a hard drive ultrabay. For example:

ThinkPad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter Model 40Y8725


Thanks for your help.

Re: Extra Hard drives on Y710?

Since I recently purchased the model you are looking at I can only answer question 1 (didn't have that much time to check out the DVD drive).  The computer comes with an additional hard drive cage as well as black plastic tray to install in the secondary drive bay slot.  You'll need a SATA hard drive (I'm sure you're aware of that).
