Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I pretty much agree with you all the way, which is why I have yet to dive into the SSD world.

You mentioned swap and "running out of RAM" but most machines these days have 4GB or more of RAM out of the box, even laptops. While I don't think one should run without swap, I really don't see the benefit of putting it on an SSD if it will rarely be touched. The exception would be older machines limited to 2GB of RAM or less, though the cost/benefit equation of an SSD in such a machine is something else to ponder.
