Hi everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

When my Macbook Air HDD died, the MacOS.com support recommended buying a RunCore SSD of 128GB.
Already bought and mounted the SSD in which I installed MacOSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
Digging a little more about the information found on the SSD TRIM Enabler (With Trim Enabler, you can enable Trim for third party Solid State Drives in Mac OSX. Trim is a command That is Executed in the background by the operative system When you delete files, informing the SSD That the blocks are no longer in use and can be deleted. By doing this, the SSD can avoid slowing down future write operations to Those blocks.)
and my big question is: Should I install this patch or not?
Thanks!

I don't think there's a good answer for your question.
TRIM is an important feature for maintaining speed, over the life of your SSD. But, TRIM is becoming less and less of an issue, because the manufacturers are designing controllers that provide the TRIM functionality, built-in to the SSD - so recent SSDs may not need that kind of software support to Enable Trim from the operating system...
I think it won't hurt anything to try it...
