Ok first off i know its probably been asked before so apologies in advance but i searched and couldn't find anything. I have an old laptop that takes sata drives and has DVI output, so i was thinking of using that as a HTPC with media running off an External hard(firewire probably) or some form of network storage. so is it worth buying a SSD for the OS and apps? as far as i can see even if the OS ran quick it would still need to wait for the media to catch up yeah? so i don't think its worth getting one. But i hope you guy can shed some light on this for me.
