Apparently SSD drive not worth it!
When I bought my 1.6 Ghz, HDD air I wished I had $1000 extra just to play with the SSD drive. It promised so much that I have to admit I was very intrigued. Now after reading comparisons between the SSD and HDD models the differences arent all that great. Yes, the HDD model is slower but not THAT much slower, at least not enough to justify the $1,000 premium Apple is charging. I was surprised that battery life barely improved with the SSD model. Start up time was also something like 12 seconds faster than the HDD model, but SLOWER than the HDD macbook pro!
Maybe that is why Steve Jobs kinda downplayed the SSD option when he introduced the air at macworld. I just dont think Slightly faster read times, no difference in battery life and a booting up 12 seconds justifies such a high premium. Apparently as of now, the less expensive model holds the best value for your money.
Here is the article for those of you who want to read it.
