Using netbookbootmaker and netbookinstaller everything will work out of the box for you. I was dualbooting osx and win7 but decided just to use osx. I followed mechdrew's newest guide here and everything went very smoothly.

Your cost/Gb on a SSD will be much higher than cost/Gb on a standard HDD. Many users like the SSD because of slightly faster boot times, programs starting quicker, no noise, no moving parts...
I personally have a standard 160Gb HDD in my 10v and I have no issues. My Mini boots up quick, wakes from sleep super fast, has no issues opening files or applications...
Many people bring up battery life and heat when debating HDD vs SSD but it makes such a minute difference that it is irrelevant. Most of the heat will come from your N270 and the GMA950... not from the HDD/SSD.
