How many years will a ssd in an ultrabook last on heavy use?

Although i am not going to buy an ultrabook any time soon...but i am planning for a laptop/ultrabook with decent storage with long battery hours. But i read that ssd's don't last very very long? I do stuff like programming, gaming, using virtual machines(vm's always get fragmented in normal hdd).

  1. SSDs can last really quite a long time, your use isn't particularly heavy. Take a look at this: http://techreport.com/review/27436/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-two-freaking-petabytes
  2. As most SSDs have a 5yr warranty. i would say after 5yrs you are going to have trouble.
