For a non-laptop machine with the following target
characteristics: energy efficient, non-gaming, powerful
and fast; should SSDs (
be used and, if so, how? SSD have very fast seek times and
can have fast read speeds (

Specifically, what directories ought to be allocated to
the SSD drives?
Boot (/boot)?
All of the bin directories (/bin, /usr/bin, etc. since
these are mostly read-only and are used alot)?
Lib directories (/lib, /usr/lib, etc.) ?

If you are running a database, should at least the index tables
be mapped to an SSD? Some of the main tables maybe too big for
the current generation ($$) of SSDs.
