Reinstalling OSX affect SSD?
I recently got a brand new 2012 MacBook Air and have needed to reinstall OSX 3 times due to my experimentation with boot camp , accidentally running out if batteries while installing something , and some other issues but nothing related to the hardware or anyone's fault but my own.
Anyway I've been using Internet recovery to re install ML and I know SSD's have a finite lifespan. Have I negativity affected my SSD by multiple is reinstalls?

Might i suggest you buy a external harddrive and clone a fresh install using either superduper (free) or carbon copy...then if you need to reinstall all you have to do is boot from usb drive and reimage that drive back to air....wayyyyy faster then redown loading ml all over again....

What happens if I choose to or have to reimage from my SuperDuper copy? Does it write over and eliminate the bootcamp partition? The bootcamp isn't mission critical so I've been too lazy/cheap to find a good backup for it.
