What is the significance of the Mac OS X 10.6 not having trim support for SSD drives? I was looking at Crucial's C300 drives, but then I read about trim support being really important. thanks for any thoughts.

    It's not a huge thing right now. TRIM allows for you to maintain the speed of your drive over time but often there are tools that come with some vendor's SSD that will offer TRIM features to preserve the speed.
