In a pure SSD environment the system will boot faster as you said but applications will start faster too. The system will overall feel more responsive in many cases. Disc intensive applications / operations will typically receive speed improvements as well.
In the hybrid SSD cache + HDD case, if there is something that isnt in the cache you drop down to the speed of the HDD
