Been doing some reading on using TRIM on SSDs under OSX. Now i notice that my wife's Air has TRIM enabled on its SSD, but my fresh install of Lion on my MBP with a Patriot Pyro2 hasnt enabled TRIM, and my 10.7 Hackintosh with a Crucial M4 doesnt use TRIM.

There is a school of thought which says that HFS is natively better than NTFS and hence needs less garbage collection and therefore doesnt need TRIM, but then that doesnt always make sense as I commonly delete files.

Any consensus on here for the use of TRIM under Lion?
