Up until about 2 months ago mine was 90% until I acquired a new windows 7 machine for my server. Then I added an SSD as a boot drive and am now running 100% SSD Which is 6 machines 1 of which gave to my parents but it's still mine.

So what % of your machines have an SSD?

I've got one in my laptop, but I have yet to put one in my desktop. So 50% for me. Hopefully it'll be 100% in a few weeks.

I have an Intel 80 GB SSD in my Desktop. My wife's Asus laptop does not. Even though she has a faster processor, my computer still boots up and runs faster!

100%. My HP laptop, Macbook Pro, Mac Mini server, and desktop PC all have SSD in them (OCZ). They are so cheap right now, it's worth every penny to convert them all. Recently bought another Vertex 4 256GB for $175. Crazy cheap!

If I had to make a guess, aprox 40%. The regular use desktops pretty much all have SSD's; servers, test machines, stuff like that don't, not yet anyway.

I don't have an SSD, and I don't know anyone with one.

Although I'd like to get one or more, the price is just not worth it at this point, and now that you've got 4TB HDDs showing up............................................................

50%. Primary Desktop has one (128GB Samsung 830), Primary Laptop has one (256GB Samsung 830).

Don't feel the need to have one in my server and I've just removed the one from my secondary laptop (after getting the OCZ drive replaced 6 times in 2 years I've put back in a regular HDD until I buy a more reliable brand).

50% for me. My Asus G74 has a Samsung 830 and my MacBook Pro probably will never have one because I don't want to sacrifice my DVD drive for a secondary HDD.
