    Money isn't an issue, just wondering how much of an improvement would I see over the internal drive? Mostly doing video editing.

    Lacie's Little Big Disk External SSD will do 480Mb/s reads when set up in RAID 0. If you need that kind of speed, then I'd get one. Totally lustworthy.

    If you need 800Mb/s then get two of them... or 4 standard versions.
