just curious, and sorry if I accidently hijack thread, but what is the biggest advantage of an SSD?
The biggest advantage as arzbhatia has said "mindblowing speed"
Once you go SSD, you never HDD again
The only claims (advantages) an HDD has over an SDD is PRICE and CAPACITY (e.g. $100 for 120GB SSD will buy 1TB HDD). Other than that, SSD's performance is miles ahead, has excellent shock resistance (data not lost if you drop it on hard surface), silent because of no moving parts, low power consumption etc.
But since price and capacity are issues with SSDs, we pair them to work with HDDs, using the latter for data storage and some software installs.
