I know SSD's rock. Have them in my MBP 15", my MBA 13" etc. Need to replace my 5 yr old iMac 24" with a new iMac 27". The SSD is ridiculously expensive - $600 for a 256GB. Whereas I have a spare Samsung 256GB SSD just bought on Amazon at sale price. But the iFixit procedure for adding a SSD is scary - way too many steps. My usage is typical Safari/iTunes/iMovie/iDVD/Photoshop CS6, Aperture, iPhoto and VMs to run Win 7 ultimate for work, and VPN clients to work etc. I plan to add 16GB or preferably 32GB memory. But the SSD is a ripoff from apple. Plus if I get it with the 2TB disk alone, then not sure if power cables/SSD tray/SATA cable connector is there. Any recommendations.
