I put an SSD in both of my laptops. The one that I use the most often is a Dell business class machine (Latitude), and even though it is about 5 years old now its 2.5GHz dual core processor is still fairly fast. With the SSD and a clean install of Win7 home premium, it completely cold boots in about 15 seconds.

I put an SSD in my other laptop, a small machine that I use for travel with 1.6GHz dual core processor. I ported over the original Toshiba install of Win7 home premium and there is some bloatware in there. This machine takes almost a minute to boot, but still a little faster than it did with its original slow Toshiba hard drive.

I put one in a 2009 Macbook.
Boot time dropped from about 50 seconds to 30 seconds.

Edit- I just timed it and the Dell Latitude did the full boot in 23 sec. Apparently I was remembering wrong.

I replaced the HD in my 2009 with an SSD a couple years ago.
Boot time after the swap is about 55-60% of the time it used to take.

It is a 120GB OEM Apple part I picked up used.
It came out of a newer Macbook Pro.
"System Report" only identifies it as Apple.
I'm pretty sure the mfgr was shown on the label, but I would need to pull it out to see.

my latest home 'desktop' is an intel NUC, with an unbelievably tiny 128GB ssd ON A CHIP. Super easy to set up, open the cover, snap in memory card, snap in ssd card, close it up, install Ubuntu 15.04 LTS from USB, done. LOVE it!

I have never compared specs but I believe the cheap little "Passport" external HDs through WD SES upgraded USB ports are just as good for encoding video from HD to HD as the old 15,000 RPM SCSI drives I had in my Pentium 1.

And they aren't as noisy, as heat generating, as expensive, as crowded for space or as prone to meltdowns. Modern tech is good when it comes to PCs.

And SCSI can be a real pain when it comes to loading up old operating systems like NT4.
