A lot of the work and play I do on my computer isn't I/O bound so the only time I would probably ever notice the SSD is on boot times

See thats the misconception that drives me nuts. People act like unless you're loading and unloading gigabytes of files at a time, you don't need or will notice an SSD. The value is there when you click the start bar in windows it loads everything instantly, when you search for something it is found instantly, when you launch ie or any other program it pops up instantly even if the pc has just booted, when you run your antivirus it takes 13 mins instead of hours, when you right click on some random file amidts a thousand other random files windows instantly selects the right submenu without a 2-3 second pause, etc etc etc. This is even beyond the gain in boot times and loading and etc.
And again its 150 we're talking about here, not your first born child's right arm. Its a couple of dinners with the girl friend, or a trip to the mechanic for a quick tune up. I'm not saying money grows on trees, but man its not like back in the day when ssds were 4 dollars a gig.
