refurb return question

    Hello, I got an 11" Air from the refurb store, but its a bit too small for me so I'm going to return it, but this is the first time I've used an SSD, so is just reformatting it with disk utility and reinstalling the OS enough to erase the data?

    Just checking, and I don't think I put anything too important on there anyway, and its going back to Apple, but just curious if SSDs require more steps or not. Erasing the disc will probably erase the Windows 8 partition I tested out too, I think. I thought I saw in another topic just reformat was fine (something about trim or something like that), but just checking first.

    If u don't have any important stuff, don't worry about it then.

    Normally u put your stuff into /user/ (?)
