On the SSD as it replaces the hard disk. You could also save them to an external disk, a USB key, burn them to a CD or DVD, etc.

All true answers.

The problem with an SSD is the maximum read-write cycle barrier. Sooner or later your SSD is simply going to stop working. Not anytime soon, but most builders will include a second hard disk as a storage unit. Put your pictures, music and games on the traditional hard drive, the OS and updates and Office on the SSD.

It’s safer; it keeps the SSD doing what it does best and provides a nice place to put your backup image. If you’re on a laptop you can get an external USB drive.

^The laptop is going to be inoperable long before the SSD is, provided that it's a somewhat modern SSD.

If a laptop is expected to last 10 years, and if it has a 120GB SSD that is rated for 1000 write cycles, then your daily usage would need to exceed 32GB before you would wear out the SSD.
