They are fast small and expensive. They are solid state so no moving parts. I believe they make readyboost obsolete. Readyboost uses a a compact flash card to make access to certain files faster. An SSD makes the whole hard drive faster than a compact flash card.

They are a pretty good upgrade if you can afford it because it addresses the slowest part of the system.

$89.99 for a 64 GB mSATA drive. Works real well with a Z68 chipset.

Interesting concept, but I would just use a two SSD setup.

It doesn't matter whether you get a Samsung, Intel, Corsair, Crucial, or Sandisk SSD. If you are currently running a traditional HDD, spend the 100-150 bucks and get one, you will love it. They are now affordable enough.

I want to go full blown SSD (2x 240GB in RAID 0) but thought this might be a good compliment to my 600GB raptor for now.

any suggestions for best laptop deployments of SSD? i need to get a new laptop in the next few months and i've been very happy with my MacBook Pro, but the SSD's in the Apple laptops are way too expensive.

So I was thinking of getting a nice Win7 laptop w/ SSD's and a good graphics card so I can play SC2 and D3 on it, and keeping my (now 4 year old) MBP to edit movies on Final Cut with.

suggestions?

Just pick out a laptop and purchase your own SSD. It really is that simple and painless. Notebooks that can hold two hard drives benefit greatly because you can have SSD for OS and HDD for storage.

A SSD is also benefitial for tablets and any other laptops that experience frequent movement.

Aside from running an SSD for your entire boot drive, I would suggest an Intel 311 setup with a z68 chipset motherboard. (also, the 313 series drives are right around the corner http://www.anandtech.com/show/5566/i...launching-soon )

Correct. Looks like it's just a driver + middleware...
