Macbook Air - SSD, question about longevity
Do SSD lasts long? Lasts longer than HDD? I've read/heard that overtime, SSDs can slow dramatically as the space gets filled. Is this true?

They should last much longer since they have no moving parts that can break down like a traditional spinning hard drive.
SSDs will slow down quite a bit if there is no TRIM or other garbage collection happening, which you definitely won't have to worry about after Lion comes out. Right now only SSDs that come with Apple computers have garbage collection support out of the box now.
