I've looked into a few computers for Revit and one of the options for internal hard drive is solid state drive.  This solid state drive or SSD seems to have only 128 GB but it's more expenisve than the others.  I know it's suppose to be the newer technology but can it be better with less memory?  Will it be able to take an intensive program like Revit?  Does anyone know??

640GB HDD (7200rpm, Serial-ATA)   

750GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA)

500GB (7200 RPM); Hybrid 4G Serial ATA hard disk drive

I've been reading vague answers about this.  The posts were old.  Maybe now the SSD's very appropiate for Revit?

The idea of SSD, is great, however a friend just installed one on a new computer of his, and it locked up. and he lost everything. I would wait until they become more reliable. and 128GB seems small for all the programs that we have on our machines these days.

Attached is a performance, detail sheet. Maybe this will help you with your selection. This machine is getting old by most standards. But it still seems to work fast enough for me.
