SSD are too expensive. At the moment good idea is to store / on SSD and /home on normal HDD (more memory for our files).

I think SSDs are pretty good depending on what manufacturer you go with (I am getting a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro for my new desktop and currently have a Kingston SSD in my Chromebook) as some are better than others. However, in my last laptop I think having SSDs in a RAID set up is bad currently (at least RAID 0).

I am surprised that no one has mentioned the fact that ssd drives in a laptop add about 30 minutes to your battery time because they use less power.
