Gonna Get SSD when i can for my Toshiba Laptop, Despite it still runs XP unforuately, may look into SSD for Parents PC in the future, This Desktop here i only got 1 internal bay for a hard drive, so not sure on getting SSD yet for this one, not sure where i'd put all my data at lol--(Music, PIctures, Documents, etc)


You don't need a bay for an SSD as they're tiny and you can just lay them or velcro them to your pc.

So far just 1 out of 6 computers in the household with an SSD (My laptop).

I would recommend them to anyone using Windows 7 or later.

Yeah, because HDD noise correlates directly to a PC working :p SSD's are great, but I still need HDD's to store data on, so I still have 2 HDD's in my desktop just for that reason. I use my desktop to stream media to my netbook and some other devices around the place

Only one machine (my main), so 25%. See no reason for having one on non-main machines.
