As it stands SSD's as all the dedicated drives is really where the future is headed. Thats why now, in an era where speed is key, it makes all the difference.
Well I never touched an SSD in my whole life and I got a Caviar Green as my boot device... I was thinking economically and environmentally during that time lol. I even did a RAID 0 with 2 Caviar greens, to my surprise they're still alive to this day (I bought them in 2009) even with RAID 0, although I've noticed performance degenerated so I decided to remove the RAID and just do two separate disks, 1 as boot the other as backup and video recording.
I'm probably gonna get an SSD with my next build, just to see what the hub bub is about.
