    For me a lot of the *benefit* of using an SSD is that it speeds up stuff like mock and yum which is highly var-dependent...

      if you don't need an upgrade to happen super-fast, then there's no reason to sacrifice your SSD's lifespan; especially something to consider if you don't have a lot of money to spend on a new drive, or if it's difficult to replace the drive in your laptop.

      Edit: then again, if you're using a laptop you probably won't have another drive for /var.... XD
