SSD & External drive
I am just curious I have an SSD in my Macbook pro and I am considering a thunderbolt HDD. If I am ripping DVDs straight to the external HDD does this also wear down the SSD as if I was just writing to SSD or is it being bypassed?
Also if using a VM partition but still selecting external drive to write ISO files to will this still limit writes to the SSD?

Anything you write to external drives will go straight to the external without write cycles to the SSD.
That said, don't worry about write cycles. You are correct there is a finite number of cycles per cell on a SSD, but even if you are a very heavy user, you will not hit that limit for many many years.
