    Hey, As i'm planning to buy a macbook as soon as they appear with Core i5 processors, and since i want teh fastest most reliable experience possible, im also getting an SSD.

    After using a Solid State Disk with my windows xp machine, i've realized that without TRIM, write performance degrades considerably.

    This leads me to ask two questions, and any help is greatly appreciated:

    1. Will this SSD work if i format it as a mac drive?
    256GB Samsung SSD :D - its gotten good reviews off amazon, but i wana ask the experts (macrumors community) :cool:

    2. How do macs perform with SSD's (is TRIM support required?) (Does Snow Leopard Support TRIM?)

    Thanks everyone. :apple:

    EDIT: The samsung SSD is OEM only - Corsair buys them and Puts it own label on them -- So i'll be getting:
