I'm not a fan of cryptic question title's, but then I'm not too sure how to elaborate but here goes:
We were planning on buying new PCs for our developers with 128GB SSD drives (the VM takes around 70GB, so I don't think there's enough room for the Windows 7 on there as well, but if you think otherwise please say so!).
If the OS is still on an old spin drive but the VM (using VMWare) is on an SSD will the developers see the full advantage of the SSDs power?
Just as a clarification
I am aware that it will help the performance to have my VM on an SSD; what I'm most interested in is whether I might lose some of the performance benefits if the OS is still on a old style hard disk.
