Ended up going with a Crucial M4 128 GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5 inch SSD drive on amazon for $116 with shipping for my mid 2010 15" Macbook Pro. I'm planning on waiting on installing when the new Mac OS comes out and I'll install it in. My questions are: Can I just open up the macbook, replace the stock HDD with the SSD, insert a boot CD or USB drive, boot from USB/CD and use disk utility to format and install the OS X? Or is there some other method I should be using? And with SSDs I need to be enabling Trim? What is that exactly and how would I enable that on this SSD? Here is a direct link to what I purchased in case you guys wanna know which SSD it is. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004W2JKZI/ref=ox_ya_os_product Thanks all.
