What are the benefits of the SSD exactly? Worth it?

I'll be purchasing the 13" MBP soon and was wondering what exactly the benefits and negatives of the optional SSD are.

It is much faster, has no noise and is less-prone to breaking. It has no moving parts either. It is definitely worth it if you have the money.

The only downsides I can think of are the price and capacity other than that SSDs are better than HDs.
