im thinking about buying an intel 320 series ssd, im just wondering, would it make any sense to wait for lion to come out before i buy this drive?

thanks

Why? Are you wanting TRIM support or another reason? There is no guarantee Apple will expand its support of TRIM in non-Apple SSDs. Get it if you need it now.

The TRIM workaround in Snow Leopard seems to be working very well. As was mentioned, there's no guarantee that Lion will support TRIM for non-Apple OEM drives so there's no compelling reason to wait until Lion to buy one.

I bought this one today, and will install only Snow Leopard on it, and wait for Lion.

That TRIM stuff is not very clear for me.
