Recommendations for DVD ripper with Lion

Hi everybody.

I am a long time reader and first time poster!

I can normally find the answers to my questions by using the sites search tools but had a bit of trouble with this one.

Basically Ive bought a new 2011 MacBook Air which came pre loaded with Lion.

I'm incredibly happy with Lion and find it a pleasure to use. Thus changing back to SL is not an option for me.

I travel a lot and love to have my own personal dvds saved onto my laptop - especially for long haul flights.

I want to be able to save all my favourite dvds onto my new air so obviously I need a ripping tool. However, now I have Lion it appears a lot of ripping tools don't work with it yet. Can anyone recommend the best dvd ripping tool for Lion? I don't mind paying something for it.

Also, just to make it clear this is for my own personal collection of dvds that I have paid for in full (mostly the Office - absolutely love this show and always good for passing travelling hours) and I will not be using it to do download pirated internet movies, etc.

Finally, although the Apple superdrive counterpart to the air is very well priced and visually attractive I'm wondering if I can use a none apple external drive - I would rather purchase something a bit more impact resistant for when I do take this with me (camping, biking, etc). Will a none apple external CD/dvd drive work and can anyone recommend anything here?

Thanks to all that take the time to read this thread and maybe even add to it.
