I'm pretty new to SSD technology, so I don't know how it compares to hard drives when it comes to securely erasing the drive. Is it enough to run Disk Utility and erase the drive with the option "overwrite with zeroes", or is this designed for hard drives? Are there other actions that should be taken?

I'm not looking for NSA-grade security though, just the kind of wipe you'd do if you're returning or selling the Mac.
