Finally I give in. Spent the best of the last two days researching the interwebs for real data on apple-delivered SSDs. I found a lot of people posting reviews on other-brand SSDs in their MBPs, but very little with apple supplied SSDs (http://kaylan.org/?p=213). Especially interesting is performance data after severe use, as the degradation SEEMS to be major for Macs where no trim is available. OWC just tries to upsell their drive. Intel seems to be ok, but to small for me. Apple seems to have a decent SSD manufacturer by now (Toshiba), one review can be found here: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1230/1/ It is all well in this review, BUT nothing is said about degradation IF the OS does not support TRIM (From the review: The Toshiba HG2 series of SSDs appears to do very well when it comes to performance degradation thanks to their proprietary wear leveling algorithm and of course the Windows 7 TRIM command.) Any real world experiences here, ideally from someone already having a Toshiba brand in a recent MBP? It's not the raw, headline speed I am after, I am looking for a robust, worry free operation without having to 'recondition' the drive any six months or something.
