    Some questions about installing an SSD drive on a Mid-2010 Macbook Pro
    Hi. I just ordered the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240 GB SATA 6.0 Gb-s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive and I was wondering what exactly do I have to do to get this running fine on my Macbook? I remember reading somewhere that there were little tweaks you have to/should do for a Mac?

    Also, I plan on installing a fresh copy of Lion on this drive. Will migration assistant make everything exactly the way it is on my current HD? Like safari/firefox bookmarks and such?

    Edit: I just discovered Mountain Lion has been released. So I will be installing a fresh copy of Mountain Lion on the new SSD, then migrating from Lion on my old HD. Not sure if this makes a difference but I thought I'd mention it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Do I need to also buy an enclosure? I just bought the drive itself. By tweaking, I meant I recall hearing something about trim (i don't know what this is). And also PRAM and another ram maybe? There was also some other things. I don't know what any of these are so I don't know if it's mandatory or whatever?
