    Hi,

    im looking to replace my HD with a new SSD drive in my MBP mid 2010.

    I'm not sure its worth the investment if i can't provide trim support for it.

    How can i accomplish this?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Forgive me for not reading through the whole thread, but does the 'Trim Enabler' application work?

    What would your recommendation be for a SSD with over provisioning and good garbage collection?

    OWC have a good reputation with Macs, they're reliable, very fast and have the Sandforce controller which incorporates good Garbage Collection, thus negating the need for OS based TRIM.

    I put a Mercury Extreme Pro from OWC in my 2010 MBP about a month ago, and now it flies (power button to login window in 15 seconds).

    Hey, do you think i need a 60 or 115 GB SSD if its just for OS and applications?

    How much space will the OS and apps take up?
