    +1 on SSD, it's night and day for me, so much faster.
    This behavior is by design.

    or you just run fstrim once in awhile.

    I have 4 SSDs in 3 computers -- two laptops and a desktop. You can't beat it for the root filesystem -- booting in 20 seconds instead of 2 minutes. But they do cost more $$ per GiB than a hdd, so if you have massive data storage, a SSD doesn't make good sense for that purpose. If you can afford one for the OS and root filesystem, you won't be sorry. Personally I'll never install my OS on a hdd again.

    I also have a SSD...120GB Intel 510 series....boot times ~8 seconds...it is definitely noticeable when calling up information...wicked fast
