    Hello, I have been looking through the forums for a ssd guide for new users. After reading all the reviews and hearing that about the speed increases and its ghostly quietness I bought an intel ssd 80GB G2 from Amazon.

    I have been searching for a comprehensive guide for ssd's, mostly for the unibody macbook, but havent found much. Is there a guide out there that will show me how to install the ssd and what to do after I install the ssd. Like tweaking some options on my macbook to get the best performance out of my intel ssd.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks :D

    Installing an SSD is the same as installing any other hard drive in a Macbook. Check out ifixit.

    What miles said on the physical install.

    Not sure what you're thinking needs to be tweaked?

    Installing the SSD seems to be easy enough. :)

    But as for the tweaking I remember reading somewhere a while ago that I should turn off some settings in my macbook if using a ssd but I cant find that thread anymore.

    Like how in Windows 7 it automatically tweaks some of its settings to fit for the ssd.

    There recently was a new ssd optimization guide for windows 7 if anyone was interested: Windows 7 SSD Optimization

    I am looking for something like this but for OSX users.
