The much lower weight and power consumption of SSDs make them a good
choice in portables, but their cost-per-GB is so much higher than even a
good 7200 RPM HDD that for a 24/7 server (which is presumably
non-portable) you'd get adequate performance and possibly longer life at
a significantly lower cost going the old-school route.
