Ok, I know the comments that are coming about the pointlessness of this exercise financially, but here goes...
Today I received my Crucial RealSSD 256Gb drive via FedEx. I am now installing a copy of Windows 7 Pro. (The drive was actually for my Latitude but I couldn't resist seeing the speed difference.)
The installation process is nothing to get excited about. All in all it took about 50 minutes. During the stage where it does the "Expanding Windows files", it sat at 0% for about 14 minutes and then immediately shoots to 100%.

Here are some benchmarks. Benchmarks were taken with CrystalDiskMark 2.2 with power settings changed to "performance" and anti-virus real time scanning disabled.
Mini 10v with Crucial RealSSD 256gb
Vostro A90 with RunCore (2nd Gen) 32gb SSD
(Not a true comparison but once I put the original HDD back in the 10v I will grab a screenshot of it's performace numbers.)
The funny part is my Mini feels faster than my desktop which I thought was pretty quick. It has two WD Raptors in a RAID 0.
Ah, and a shameless pic of my kit in all its glory (crappy phone camera not withstanding).
