I would guess that you won't be able to install Apple's implementation and Apple would probably not do it for you.

You could probably use one of the implentations that people are talking about that seem to duplicate it though. All that seems to be required is an SSD, and HD and some console commands to bind the two. It seems relatively straight forward.

Heck, I would be up for one in my MacBook Pro. I'm actually thinking about making my own with the data doubler kit from OWC. Or just going with another SSD and striping RAID 0. So, I can't see why this couldn't be done on your own with a 2011 Mac mini. I can't imagine finding one from Apple at this point though.
