    Let's hope this happens for Mac Pro's as well.

    Here's the story on AppleInsider...

    Errrr, isn't that screen the Mac OS showing you the metadata from the device in question. A 'Yes' or 'No' there is a property of the drive; not Mac OS X. If SSDs are going to report TRIM support, that is a far cry from Mac OS X leverage it. This display change just means can read the metadata sent back from the drive. While a necessary "step 0" to a long term solution, it doesn't really mean diddly about actually doing anything with that metadata. For example, is the file system going to do something significant with the model id string?

    You are probably correct, but an OSX developer had to interpret a meta data bit and actually give it a label called "Trim support" which implies they are at least aware of this, and presumably doing something to support it, otherwise presenting it would be meaningless.
