is like $500-$600...maybe some day when the prices come way way down and the reliability comes way way up, I would think about it but personally I wont touch one now......just my 0.02
On the plus side, SSDs are quiet, robust against physical shock, power efficient, don't generate much heat, and they can be crazy fast.
in my desktop is slow by SSD
standards, but it still humiliates the fastest hard drives for many tasks. Even the relatively slow SSDs found in the Mini 9 can much faster than hard drives for many tasks.
Yes, large SSDs are crazy expensive, so they won't replace hard drives for media and game storage any time soon. But cheap SSDs are big enough to store everything else.
But there's no decision to be made when upgrading a Mini 9, since it'll only accept specialized SSDs anyway.
