SSDs have their place even if you don't want to acknowlede it. On my workplace we've upgraded 4 year old laptops with SSDs because those 60+ laptops were unusable how slow they were. An you know what happened after upgrade? Everything is flying fast on those laptops. That was much better upgrade than boosting ram from 4 to 8 GB (max supported) of RAM (we've tried that one, difference was miniscule).
It just doesn't matter if the user is booting, rebooting, opening outlook, browsing, or whatever, evething is reasonably fast.
And don't get me started on how my retina macbook pro with 16GB of RAM and a SSD is fast. It is ridiculously fast in day to day work. I absolutely don't have to wait for a computer to do something. When you get used to this kind of speed and responsiveness, when you get back to a relatively fast computer (good cpu, board, ram etc) with a normal HDD the difference is astonishing as everything seems to be dog slow. And the other poster is right traditional HDD is the biggest bottleneck on the whole system bay faaaar.
