My Macbook Air will arrive sometime this month, and I've gone for the 64GB SSD 11" model. I've noticed a few people saying they have reinstalled OS X when their machine has arrived to remove the bundled apps and get some drive space. I have never had a machine with an SSD before, and I was just wondering whether doing a clean install would affect the performance of the Macbook at all? I've heard stories about how certain things can degrade the performance of the SSD, but I don't really understand the technology yet. As this is only going to be a portable writing machine, I certainly don't need any of iLife or the other apps that come pre-installed.
