just a guess though. it could have 2 bays, I just don't see it being very liekly.
this is what confuses me.

its less than 1 inch thick, so half height ssd's would be what? .4 inch each? a little ridiculous

then again. 2 bays + the optical drive would be like 80% of the laptop. which is also ridiculous.

It definitely will NOT work. Sony uses a proprietary drive that is basically a sandwich of two drives that fits in a standard 2.5 enclosure. You need to look at a Lenovo if you want an SSD boot drive and a larger storage drive. The WWAN port on some lenovo's is compatible with MSATA ssd's. That would be your best bet. Do a search on notebookreview for more info.

It's not really proprietary if it fits in a standard 2.5" enclosure.....
