    Since I don't have any experience replacing the hard disk myself nor know anyone that can (otherwise I would definitely opt for an X-25M); if I deliver my 13'' MBP to the apple store and ask for an SSD placement (currently having the 5400 RPM drive), will I get one of the newer SSDs that support TRIM in boot camp? Or can't you really know beforehand ...

    Thanks in advance :]

    I'll be replacing my drive when I get a new SSD. From the looks of YouTube videos about it its a pretty easy proceedure (and it won't void your warrenty either!). :D

    How about AHCI & TRIM, will everything be automatically configured (windows)
    -when restoring a previous image
    -when performing a clean install

    You'll probably have to get a reseller to do it, and you can just imagine the cost of that :eek:

    yes, with Win 7 TRIM will be active... that is, if your SSD has TRIM supported in it.
