I am awaiting the arrival of an Asus EeePC, which is SSD based.

Ive been reading about the limited writes on SSD, with conflicting info.

Does anyone have a clear info on this. Do they have limited write
capabilities? Is this within a normal users/machines lifespan? What
happens when it reaches it write limit.

There are tricks to reduce write such as use a non-journalised file
system like ext2 instead of ext3/4 and do not use a swap partition.
