As long as we're on this topic, I can't get over how much faster my POC
MacBook Air is than my not-so POC Mac Mini.  The former has an ssd, the
latter, a regular HD.  The former has a 1.4 ghz i5 with 4GB RAM, and the
latter a 2.3 ghz i5 with 16 GB RAM.  That SSD makes the air scream.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
