    Since trim command do not support in mac osx yet. Is it better to upgrade SSD drive later. Actually I am planning to upgrade Apple SSD 120GB when I buy the new MBP. Coz it is only cost $100 more. But the question is it do not support TRIM command... so it may affect the speed, right ?

    Any advice, thX a lotttttttttttt!

    It's not like if your SSD becomes dirty then it'll slow down to the speeds of 4200 RPM lo density drives of yesteryear. In benchmarks you will notice a slight decline in write speed. Nothing to get freaked out about. snApples SSD is a fine choice and for $100 bux it's a no brainer. Get it.

    If you buy a 2011 MBP with an Apple SSD then you will have TRIM anyways.
