I own one - Typical "yum update" times are in the order of "very few" minutes at average.

Looking only at install times...

Asus EEE 900A (SSD): 3m40s
HP xw4400 Workstation (SATA platter): 1m25s

...and the latter did kernel-devel as well as kernel, kernel-headers and kernel-firmware, plus it also had to remove a kmod-nvidia. (Times are approximate.)

...so the SSD is about 3x slower or more (especially as I notice kernel-devel took the desktop the longest).

 Yum isn't really the problem here, it's the
rpms themselves, constantly doing ldconfigs, cache updates, tonnes of
hardlinking, etc...

From what I experience, SELinux policy updates are by far means the most resource intense/most time consuming part of updating.

Really? For me, it's always OOo updates... 100 MB in a single package? (What's worse is that OOo can't be updated while running... it doesn't crash, but it becomes unable to save; bad news if you forgot to save first. That and Firefox are the only things I'm aware of with that problem, but at least with FF it only breaks typing addresses into the address bar.)

Whereas selinux is a 2.0 MB package :-).
