And 2 out of three Macs that I have had to have the HDD replaced because it FAILED within two years of purchase (not for FUN reasons at all). It's also quite annoying that most all of the reliability issues with Apple computers are resolved via class action lawsuits because Apple is so reluctant to admit there is anything actually wrong.

I would not even consider putting spinning media in any new Mac when SSD is so cheap and, by comparison, completely reliable.  But the main reason that I've retrofitted SSD into my Mac Mini and MacBook Pro is the massive performance boost it provides.  So I end up using SSD for the system disk on each machine and a 1Tb RAID array for secure storage of photos & music.
