I am open to that.
It would be great to be able to custom pick and choose that sort of thing.
Do they SSDs ever get to the point where they age and start to forget stuff?
Not anymore and likely less of a chance of data loss than a regular drive. They have built in clean up to even wear and usage call TRIM. You can buy a SSD separate from the computer you get and use windows 7 system image.

I did this for my old desktop and gave it new life on a SSD and my sons brand new Laptop to SSD. This change alone changed my boot time from about 50 secs or more to about 10 on both computers.
