Is this true? I thought SSDs suffered from short lifespan... I work on my laptop 12 hours a day maybe a bit more, will I benefit from a SSD? I am happy with traditional hard drives. But I wondered if I buy a SSD how long it will last depending on my 12h/day usage. And then there is the question of which Operating System I should use. Windows 7 requires a page file. While Ubuntu doesn't. And the changes the page file will be used on Ubuntu are small anyway.
