why is it that the capacity of the Solid State Drive (SDD) very low compared to the ATA hard drive?

I am assuming that the SDD is quicker, given the Apple website description,

"...solid-state drive (SSD), which has no moving parts and delivers increased drive performance for many operations".

however would one really notice the difference in loading applications / documents etc..i thought it is was the memory and speed of the processor that did the 'speed' thing

if this is true, what is the benefit of the SDD?

Thanks in advance
