a) Extremely important
SSD is the Best thing invented since the Silicon Chip. It is about time we stopped limiting ourselves with the laws of Gravity, Momentum and Friction. Although there have been major improvements in the speed of Hard Disk Drive data transfer speeds, these improvements in transfer speed have been accomplished because of the use of a Solid State cache...more of a Hybrid between SSD and HDD.
