    Thanks Buddhahat,
    I know of those advantages.
    But I don't agree on the notion that they are actually slower than mechanical drives, but that's just from my reading articles.
    And not only startup time - in applications too.

    The latest set of drives out there, at least, seems to be faster in that aspect. Since apple don't really offer any details on their SSD drives it's hard to know tho - if it's the same speeds as the drive in their air-model then...screw it.

    Anyways thanks
