I thought it was that journaling type file systems do lots of disk writes, which is not necessarily good for SSD's that have a limited write cycle.

It's not THAT limitted. You can use journalling without any problems about the lifespan of the SSD. The data gets shuffled around by the SSD controller to keep the journal from being written to the same sector over and over and over. It will be written somewhere different each time.
And from what I've read about EXT4 is that it's supposed to seriously help the journalling performance hit on SSD's..
The best bet for fixing the journalling performance hit though is to upgrade to a RunCore SSD.. Soooo much faster than the stock SSD for writes..
