...or at least have options to choose Solid State Drives?
Doubt it, people would anyway buy aftermarket due Apple's pricing
Why would Apple have to put the price that high?
Because they always do that.... All upgrades costs Apple like 1/3 what they charge for them
I would really like though to have the SSD options, at least for the OS drive.
I doubt it. I think SSDs in desktops are nice (I never thought I'd say that) but not as necessary as they are in laptops. The point, my point, was always the "no movable parts" idea. However, since I bought one for a laptop and didn't actually buy the laptop I stuck it in my MP and I want another.
Right now the cost of SSDs are just too high to offer substantial storage and I much prefer aftermarket SSD install over Apple's SSDs.
But the option wouldn´t hurt anyone?
There are worries about SSDs in server and workstation environments and all that offering them as part of your product may entail. Mechanical drives are a safe bet and understood by the buyer at this time.
They DO offer such an option for the XServe. Also, remember, Woz went to work at FusionIO about a month before the 2009s came out (aka, too close to launch to influence them). Those might show up in the 2010s
The XServe SSDs do not take up a bay though. The current MP is not set up to accommodate 2.5" drives. There are sufficient aftermarket solutions.
I boot off of SSDs now, and think that it is a great way to work. To me, they are easily worth the cost.
