c) 18 months – 2 years

3) How important do you feel an SSD is to system performance?
b) Pretty important

I say Pretty and not Extremely because even though I have these drives in all 3 of my computers the reality is they usually do not make the application perform better they just make you get to it faster. They do however greatly increase the performance of the OS and the load time of the system. Also for some applications that use extraordinary amounts of RAM if you do not have that much RAM then having an SSD is a huge performance increase. This is especially true on my MacBook Pro 13" March 2010 which has 2x128 RealSSD SataII in RAID. I also have 1 64GB RealSSD SataII w/ a 500GB Maxtor Hybrid SSD in my i7 DV7 since it can't do raid on the OS and a 64GB RealSSD SataII w/ a 300GB Velociraptor SataII and 1TB Samsung Spinpoint SataIII in my 960T 4GHz x6. What I find is that compared to a Velociraptor its not that big of a deal for a desktop however now with the prices of 120+ GB SSDs almost the same price as the least expensive current Velociraptor the question is can I make 120GB primary partition with a 1TB secondary partition work? If the answer is yes then SSD is a no brainer. If you must have 250+GB of storage then really 2 Velociraptor 300GB drives in stripping is the answer just make sure you back it up!

As far as a laptop is concerned it is my opinion that it is a MUST to have an SSD the fact that you are greatly improving your battery life and reducing the heat of the laptop are almost enough on their own to make the dive but then add the difference in performance between your typical 5400RPM drive and an SSD and theres no comparison and lets not compare 7200RPM drive because then you are taking a serious battery hit.

No matter what though once you are in the application if it isn't swap file intensive then your performance gains are gone and as far as transferring files from one drive to another there is really no improvement at all since you are at the mercy of the slowest drive and 1TB drives will transfer just as fast for the big files.

Just my 2 cents
