Why do you want/need an SSD? SSD's are certainly more expensive (cost/gigabyte). If you want more storage...then you will certainly get more if you purchase a "regular" hard drive.
In my opinion if you're on a tight budget (which it sounds like you are)...maybe getting the larger "regular" HD is the way to go. What if you find out later on that a 64gig SSD is too small?...then you're going to need something else. Then your cost will be $60 for the SSD + the cost of something else later...which adds up to more $$$ spent overall.
