Hard disk drive or solid state disk drives?

There has been a rise of the Solid State Disk Market for a number of years. Companies like Fujitsu & Samsung have already used these in their products. It is still in its infancy stage but it WILL be common in a few years.
Have you ever heard of the use of solid state disk drives replacing the 'normal' hard disk drive?
No, never heard of it in my life!
Yes, read it from thee internet/computer magazines before
Yes, one of my friends is using it already
Using solid state disk (SSD) drives' system is faster than using traditional hard drives; but how much faster do you EXPECT, comparing to a system with the same spec.? e.g. booting XP Prof.

30-60 sec
