yeah but for the price of an 8GB SSD, you could get a 320GB mechanical drive thats heaps faster, and probably longer life (and can fit a better OS, too)
ya gotta keep in mind those small SSD's (<32GB) are several generations old, and they were the bargain basement SSD's of that era. slow, unreliable, and overall poopy come to mind.
