solid state drives are the same technology as USB flash drives. Don't get one, they're slow.
A slow hard drive = a slow comptuer
no these new ssd drives are much faster and you use them as your boot drive and have a secondary drive as your data drive. they are much faster that way.
this article is almost yr old now and these have gotten better and all use the trim

Yeah it'd work if you go that way. I just remember ****ing with an SSD drive in a netbook at work and it was garbage.
Im sure the tech is better now, then when it came out. Ill stick to my Sata 7200 RPMS, or 10k raptors
As LD says, the new generation of SSDs offer big performance improvements, however they are incredibly pricey per GB of storage, and their production reliability is not yet widely proven. For some specific applications, mostly enterprise, they make sense, but for home desktop systems, even for high end gaming systems, the fastest SATA drives (like the WD Caviar black series) are a much better bet IMO, you get very good performance, and they are cost effective enough that you can have very large storage capacity + redundancy if you wish.
Tom's Hardware has a great write up of the new Intel Sandy Bridge for those interested in specific technical details.
