    So after knowing nothing about SSDs I finally ordered this one for my 2010 i5 MBP.

    http://www.amazon.com/Intel-2-5-Inc...2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1277141725&sr=1-2

    I have searched and I know Snow Leopard doesn't support TRIM yet but I was wondering if I use boot camp and install Windows 7 won't TRIM be available then? I can install all the software that came with the SSD under Windows. So my question is if I do that will the Trim feature only work on the Windows 7 partition or the entire drive?

    -searched Mroogle and couldn't find an answer.

    Good question. I'm curious about this as well.

    My guess would be that it only works on the Windows partition. But I don't know all the ins and outs of TRIM.

    Last time I asked this, I was told it wouldn't work because it needs to be in a non-GUID partition table. From what I was told about Trim with Win7.
