Diskless iSCSI boot or hyper-v with differencing VHD

I'm studying MCSE to re-certify my MCSE NT 4.0 (lol..). I was reading iscsi and with hyper-v experience, I wonder if anyone has converted client computers to diskless boot using iscsi. I think it's really cool feature to boot computers without disk, reduce time to recover, save costs for harddrive.  
How about putting SSDs to RAID 10 and make our 80 workstations to boot all from MS iSCSI targets? Has anyone  done this? What's good and bad?

That can be good, it depends on how much you trust your RAID10 / SAN :)
I did with a couple blades not with 80 workstations, would the bandwidth & IO be enough ?
