MacWorld has published some benchmarks of the MBA with SSD.

The first of our custom MacBook Air models has arrived—a $3,098 laptop with a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo processor and a 64GB Solid State hard drive. Our benchmark results show that it outperforms a standard-issue MacBook Air by 14 percent in our overall system performance benchmark, Speedmark 5.

That is quite a premium price for only a 14% gain.

I think part of the allure of the SSD is the perceived reliability factor since it has no moving parts. I hope the prices go down in a year and then I will upgrade my MBA HDD to the SSD model.
