I knew someone will use that. But I am not talking about documents, but 
the system for example with let say architect design app, or demo 
version of developers new application with set database server and who 
knows what.

I know people that are unwilling to pay for good antivirus (MS Win 
naturally) because "it is easier/faster to just reinstall it, you only 
need 30-60 minutes" but they do not even think about how much time takes 
to configure ones environment, especially in business. I have several 
customers that don't even know their own passwords for e-mail accounts, 
and they expect me to know them, and to have their PC "just running".

So having SSD in laptop (if they are unreliable) is not much of an 
option, unless I am going to carry duplicate HDD/SSD just in case this 
one crashes.
