Time Machine on a SSD?

I have a mid2011 Mac Mini I upgraded with two Intel 240GB 520Series SSDs some time ago.

Have not yet upgraded to mountain lion but will do in a few days time.

Would it be ok to use an SSD as Time Machine?

Thing is I sometimes bring the machine to work and don't want too much to carry - so internal drives is a big plus.
I do have a external FW800 drive I make regular cloned backups to.

Until now I have been running them as two separate drives, but don't really need all that storage as I have just finished building my new home server.

I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem.

This seems like a waste of an SSD though...
