I wonder why 20GB, for a 24/7 Rig, you would need at least a 40GB drive now a days...

Because the embedded 20GB SSD aren't supposed to be the main drive, but it's there to support the 'SSD-Caching' in Intel Smart Response Technology.

It's really nice for Gigabyte to put the SSD there, SRT will boost up your responsiveness if you're a hdd user like me.( And I hope the price is right too :D)
