Is there a significant disadvantage in allowing a computer with a solid-state boot drive to use the pagefile?

Is there a significant disadvantage in allowing a computer with a solid-state boot drive to use the pagefile?

I have been working on putting together a build for my next computer, one one of the items I would like to include is an OCZ Vertex Series 30GB SSD.

"What would the difference in speed be
between reading/writing from this SSD
and PC2-8500 RAM?

SSD:

Sequential Access - Read Up to 230 MB/s
Sequential Access - Write Up to 135MB/s
Sustained Write: Up to 80MB/s

RAM:

Peak Transfer Rate: 8533 MB/s

with these factors aside, I'd buy the RAM regardless. Processing & accessing data from memory is much faster than accessing the disk."
