Now ask them which system is faster.

Which one do you think they would say?
Now, take the same two systems, and load up an intense game of Starcraft II, or BFBC2 (maxed of course) and see which they think is "faster."

Although I was agreeing with him from the start my defense is the repeated attempts to let him know he was reiterating the same **** OVER and OVER again...didn't seem to help either...

First off, I'm not a fan of blanket generalizations. A lot of times they are false or over exaggerated. Even there I made a generalization that may or may not be true. With that out of the way I know what you mean and where you're coming from. There are many possible reasons, too many to list in fact, for why some people don't bother with SSDs even when they spend a lot of money on other upgrades:
  • They are scared off by the small size and high price.
  • While SSDs have been around for years, they are still a pretty new technology, so some might not trust their reliability yet.
  • SSDs don't fit their needs.
  • They haven't been enlightened or educated on the benefits of SSDs, and so they spent money on upgrades that have been known in the past to increase performance.
  • Like someone else said, what they have works so they may not see the need for an SSD and see it as a non-essential luxury (which it is).
  • They haven't tried a system with an SSD and likely don't know what they are missing when it comes to snappiness and short boot times.

Late last year I paid about $55 for my 32GB SSD. It cut my boot time in half and made commonly used program load much quicker. Given the size of my SSD I can't really install any games on it but I did install programs that I use 90% of the time like Firefox and Microsoft Office. SSDs haven't gotten to the point where they are super affordable for installing large programs on but they are slowly getting their. Sometime when prices are lower I'll upgrade to a one of those current generation SSDs with around 400-500MB/s read and write speeds. I'm definitely sold on SSDs and see them as worth the investment. For another example, I have a laptop with a Core i5 450M 2.4GHz, 6GB of RAM, and a 500GB mechanical hard drive. It takes over a minute for it to boot-up. I recently bought an ultra-portable laptop with a Core 2 Duo SU9400 1.4GHz, 2GB of RAM, and an SSD and even with it's much slower processor and less RAM it boots in around 16 seconds. That's just insane to me but it shows what a different an SSD can make for a system.

Like somebody said on youtube:

"Don't you just hate the time it takes to open 51 programs simultaniously?
SSD will make this frequent task so much faster!"

I think anyone with a reasonable IQ level will see this is just a demonstration to show the difference over an extreme load.

weather it's just 1 programme or 1000 does not matter it's still quicker
