I don't have a laptop with ssd
Journaling SU is not recommended because of the extra writes but 
nowadays ssd should be fine with it, though less writes is less wear.  
Just take care to align your partitions to 1 or 2 MB which can be 
accomplished by going to shell on the partedit part of bsdinstall and 
use gpart -a or gpart -b
