im seriously considering replacing my 320gb 7200rpm drive in my 17 mbp .. i dont really need alot of space .. i have maybe 30gb filled up on my current hd .. the speed difference would be nice as well as no vibrations and better battery life .. but what about flashing firmware .. cant it not be done with a mbp ? u need to connect it to something else ?? what about TRIM ? this isnt a problem with win7 i hear but it is with osx ?
