If I were outfitting an office building with PCs would I put a 100 euro SSD in every one? Of course not because I have a budget and the money is better spent on other things.
you are combining everything in one puddle... Office computer and home computer is different. The original topic asks ... why get top of the line cpu and top of the line GPU and not SSD ...

lately ssd is getting mad cheap and majority here can afford ~$100 to get boot drive

For me, Adobe Premiere for example used to take 30+ seconds to load.

Now, it opens in 3-4 seconds. When you open it up several times a day / week, those seconds really add up. Then again, I value my time.

I love having my most used apps load almost instantly, rather then waiting for things to open all the time.
Photoshop CS5 used to open in about 8 seconds for me. Now it opens in about 2. I doesn't seem like that big a deal until you consider that while working on a single project I open pictures in PS between 50 -100 times. I used to just leave an instance of it running all the time but now it opends so quick I no longer need to do that.

In a corporate environment nothing should be saved onto the local machine. Just the programs and the OS.

I know that this is an ignorant rant...but hell it's basically the entire argument for the other side...

They say we no want SSD cuz its small when you could buy a bigger HDD...but it won't be faster

That is the point the OP is trying to make!
For what you might consider a 'typical' user I can concede that point. You can't play 1.5Tb of games at once.

For myself, I use my machines for work, and use several 'space hog' app's on a daily basis. Moving app's from hdd to ssd (as you would for those with a large quantity of games) for as often as I need to access them all on a daily basis would defeat the purpose. Even then, for me personally, this is only one of a few reasons I do not run ssd's. Don't get me wrong, they're great, and if I had a few hundred dollars around and nothing better to do with it, i'd get some. But with my list of crap to buy, that's not likely to happen in the near future.

Generally speaking though, I think it's simply that for most people it's just not a big priority....especially if they've never used one.

Exactly. I used to have to do that too, now I just open pics directly into PS, and I love that I can be working on them almost instantly.
