I have always used Windows but I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase a Macbook Pro. I have never used OSX except for the few minutes that I got to play with it in Best Buy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Before anyone tells me to do a search, I already have and it only confused me with all of the options. Here are the specs on the Macbook Pro that I ordered… MacBook Pro MD322LL/A 15-Inch Late 2011 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1GB 750GB 5400rpm HDD Here are the goodies that I just ordered… Corsair 16GB RAM Crucial M4 256 GB SSD I already know how to physically install the RAM and SSD but I have no idea on setting up the software, TRIM, or updating the firmware on the SSD. Could someone please provide step-by-step instructions on how to make my new SSD like it came from the factory? Since the computer is brand new, I don't need to save anything. I would like to know how to… Format the SSD. Install OSX. Update the firmware on the SSD and when to do it, before or after installing OSX. How and why to partition the drive. What is TRIM and what to do about it? Recovery disks. Anything else.
