Of course it's applicable. A hard drive that benchmarks twice as fast as another (slower) hard drive will boot up to the desktop ready to use faster, and it will open/launch large applications and games faster, and it will retrieve wanted data faster. On the other hand, it's a pleasant and scenic drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles, so who wants to drive fast?
