Haven't tried on a laptop, but have tried on a SSD RAID config for a test

Jon, as a quick tip... turn off the scheduled Defrag. SSD drives don't need it... and it actually wears them out.
This is automatically off for SSD drives in Win 7 - it's one of the changes MS made in W7 for SSD

Good point. I knew about this one. I have really enjoyed mine and other than the obvious drawback of less available space, I have appreciated the fast start times and battery life.
Any other drawbacks?

Actually.. SSD's do "frag" and the fix for this problem is a feature called "trim". Older SSD's do not have this but newer ones do.
Take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TRIM
