• Road warriors: People who shove their laptops into their bags indiscriminately will want the extra security of an SSD. That laptop may not be fully asleep when you violently shut it to catch your next flight. This also includes folks who work in the field, like utility workers and university researchers.
• Speed demons: If you need things done now, spend the extra bucks for quick boot-ups and app launches. Supplement with a storage SSD or hard drive if you need extra space (see below).
• Graphic arts and engineering professionals: Yes, we know we said they need hard drives, but the speed of an SSD may make the difference between completing two proposals for your client and completing five. These users are prime candidates for dual-drive systems (more on that below).
• Audio engineers and musicians: If you're recording music, you don't want the scratchy sound from a hard drive intruding. Go for quieter SSDs.
And, yes, I realize you could also “Cast” to “DateTime” first (and if necessary back again to “DateTime2”), but you’d lose the extra precision and again, the extra range (all prior to year 1753) benefits of “DateTime2” vs. “DateTime” which again are probably the 2 biggest and also at the same time, probably not likely needed, which begs the question why use it when you lose the implicit / easy conversions to floating-point numeric (# of days) for addition / subtraction / “age” (vs. DateDiff) / Avg calcs benefit which is a big one in my experience.
