And it might be also true that these don't support the TRIM command (which Lion will use) and finally make the OS search endlessly for some left-over blocks in disk to save the large PDF output.

I had a no-TRIM SSD. It worked fine, even when over 95% full, and regularly overwiting GBs data. (It did "garbage collection" in its spare time). However slow it gets, I'd be very suprised if it is still not much much faster than an HD.
