Dear Aunt TUAW: Can I use a third-party SSD with Lion?

Dear Aunt TUAW,

Is there any (un)official word from Apple regarding the support for 3rd party SSD HDDs with Lion? I desire to tweak my MBP but do not wish to be without garbage collection and TRIM. What advice have you? Should I hold off on acquiring an SSD?

Warm regards,

Need4Speed

Dear N4S,

Auntie is using a 3rd party SSD without any troubles. She downloaded a TRIM enabler from groths.org after reading that the Snow Lion enabler seemed to work under Lion as well.

So far, everything seems be running well.

Hugs,

Auntie T.
