I replaced the SSD with a 2TB drive, to save having to carry external drives and/or have everything on bloody annoying memory sticks.
I don't really give a damn if a program loads a tenth of a second faster, or if windows boots in three seconds less. Once stuff is loaded, memory is faster than SSD (unless it isn't any more; I don't read all the tech press), so I just max out the memory on all my machines.
