There are definitely a few scenarios that benefit from SSD. However, they generally tend to involve operations that make a lot of seeks, like database operations for example. They also tend not to be consumer focused stuff.

Additionally, ruggedised devices tend to last longer running from flash than from rotating media.

Beyond that, I guess it's people with a lot of money to spend!
