SSDs are hard drives with no moving parts which will cut down on load times significantly, it works pretty similar to the way that flash memory works. But the reason I always include a mechanical HD option is because the high cost per GB and the SSD's limited lifespan - you always want to try to have your OS separate from your data in case of a need to reformat. The SSD comes in handy because when you install Windows it will complete a full install in less than 10 min, compared to 3 - 4 hours on a regular mechanical HD.

But the reason I include those is the high cost / low capacity per GB of an SSD - with a Windows install taking up ~16GB of data you won't have much room to store your large files (games, photos, movies, etc).
