Yeah, I have already joined the SSD bandwagon. I recently got a new MacBook Pro as well with the SSD, and I LOVE it. It makes launching applications VERY snappy. Write times and not any better then a HD, but the read times are SO much faster. Another year or so, and when computers are programmed to optimize performance with a SSD, the write times will kick ass all over HD too.

Prices are not quite low enough for it to be mainstream yet, but it is the future. Especially for laptop applications, SSD is the way to go.
