    I'm planning on making a windows partition on my rMBP, however, I don't know if eventually it's going to slow down.

    On my last mac it surely did, but that one had an HDD.

    Does the SSD works the same even if I install a windows partition?
    The things that I had read tell me that it won't slow down, but I still want to hear about your experience on this.

    Thanks in advance!

    On an SSD you should be fine. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    The slowdown depends on a couple different factors. Most likely it won't slow down at all if your computer is relatively new, or if it does the SSD will be fast enough you won't notice any change in performance.

    Yes, it will, but since it's an SSD, you won't really notice it.
