Given that there is not much of a difference between entry-level mechanical drives and SSD based on average write throughput, I'm wondering if switching to SSD will make OS installation (or software installation in general) faster*? Will SSD make a full drive re-image faster*?
*Provided that the installation media/image is also placed on an SSD drive (not on a DVD-drive/network location).
PS: I am tasked to make a Cost-benefit analysis for my group on the benefit of SSDs with regards to installation and re-imaging. Installation because we are currently testing our installers and imaging because we need to re-image the test machines after testing.
