Only 3% Of Laptops Use SSDs
According to the market research firm iSuppli, only 3% of laptops currently available to buy are equipped with SSDs. Considering that most people a) don't know what an SSD is or what the benefits are, b) aren't willing to pay the premium manufacturers charge for an SSD, and c) think they need a 500GB or 750GB drive even when they don't, this figure sounds about right.
Among all notebook PCs outfitted with either HDD or SSD as their storage media, models with hard disks larger than 500 gigabytes (GB) and priced from $450 to $550 accounted for the biggest share of the market in the first quarter, at 32 percent. The second-biggest segment of 26 percent belonged to notebooks integrating hard disk drives larger than 320GB and priced between $350 and $450. Only 3 percent of the market belonged to 128GB SSD laptops or very high-end HDD notebook PCs both priced above $900, as shown in the figure below. (Source
