    He mentioned a test that put it about twice as fast at least if not more from a HDD. I could not tell you what he did or if it was done with benchmark software. Load times on Warcraft were almost nonexistent he said.

    What's the benefit of using SSD on a stationary iMac?

    I'm not well versed in the SSD world, so I'm a little confused.

    Fast boot-up (say 20 seconds or so) and instantaneous response from the OS and principal applications on the SSD - similar to an iPad or iPhone.
