I have heard that windows would disable stuff like automatic defragmenting if it notices you are running on an SSD. I checked and it hasn't turned off anything that should have been turned off automatically according to guides I've read, so I think win7 doesn't notice it's an SSD.

What I have turned off myself so far:
Automatic defrag
Pagefile
SuperFetch
Prefetch

Did I miss anything? My friend, although being a mac fanboi, insist that windows has some "Last read date" which would kill the SSD, is this true?

Fragmentation does occur with SSDs, but in a different way the hdds and doesn't slow it down like it does hdds. Because of this you shouldn't defrag a SSD.

There has been some controversy regarding number of reads and writes that a SSD can make, but I have yet to read anything substantial on the subject and at this time have my doubts regarding it's merit.

Regarding SSD READ AND WRITE

I have a Crucial c300 128GB Speed read 250mbs Hdd 100mbs
write 140mbs Hdd 100mbs
All this done on sata 2. I am going to upgrade my mobo to sata 3 then read speed should be 375mbs
as an example of speed I can do a quick scan on Microsoft security essentials in 30 seconds on sata 2
