    Hey everybody!

    I've searched the forum and I do not seem to find anyone who asks what I want to know.
    That is how I shall soon get my iMac patched with an SSD plus a hard drive on 1tb. I got Obticbay from Maxupgrades'll get rid of the CD / DVD reader against this.

    SSD as I should have in the Mac is OCZ Vertex 120 gb. I have heard and read that Mac OS X does not support Trim like Windows does.

    I was going to have OS X and the applications on the SSD and then music, pictures, movies, documents and everything like that on the harddrive.

    I want to know if all of you who have Mac with SSD or know about settings to get the SSD as much as possible?

    Move the Home folder from SSD to the HD so downloads and stuff go automatically to the HD

    I don't think that matters much. Also, the vertex 2 should clean itself up to some extent as it has built in garabage cleanup
