I'm specing up a new laptop... Dell are offering a 32Gb solid state drive as a hard drive option. Can anyone tell me why I'd want this? (I've got a 160Gb WEstern digital that's small and USB powered, so I could carry that with me, but ) it strikes me as silly to limit the laptop to 32Gb... What am I missing?
