I won't dispute what Larry says about the SSD here.  He surely has more 
experience with it that I.  I would point out that his end of life for a 
machine is probably much sooner that many of us.  This message is coming from a 
machine upgrades with parts I bought from him many, many moons ago.  It is soon 
to retire as my main use machine though.
