SSD question
May 25, 2013

I just bought a new Win8 desktop and the thing boots in like 10 seconds or less.  apps launch almost instantly, within 1-3 seconds.

I want to buy a second hard drive and I'm debating the SSD vs. spinner option.  What isn't quite adding up to me is why should I buy a much smaller SSD for the same money if I'm going to reduce my app launch time from 2 seconds to 1.  Same with boot time (a few seconds difference), and the truth is I don't boot much anyway, I leave it on all the time.

So, am I missing anything?  For now I'm leaning towards putting in another 1TB drive like the one that came with the machine, but thought I'd ask here first to see if there's something else about SSDs that would benefit me that I haven't thought about.
