    One has a spinning disk and has a capacity of 750GB. The other (SSD) is much, much faster, has no moving parts and has a capacity of 128GB or 256GB.

    Do you want to know the difference between HDDs & SSDs?

    Or do you want to know the difference between the power requirements of a HDD & an SSD?

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Hi, thanks for the reply, the ssd with either 128GB or 256GB would that be enough power, to edit a 60min film? or would it need more, and it would have 8GB of memory.
    I am a total novice never used a mac in my life, i know it show's lol!

    That's plenty of space to hold dozens or hundreds of movies.

    128GB will be not enough to store 120 minutes of ProRes encoded 1080i/p footage, as one hour usually takes up to 100GB if you use ProRes and 1080i/p footage.

    Better use an external Firewire 800 or Thunderbolt (when available, June 2011 is the current ETA) HDD, you don't need an SSD to store video on you want to work with.

    Btw, it is called "Premiere".

    If you have an external FW800 HDD, use only that to store the footage on, don't use the SSD to store the footage.

    The WD My Book Studio editions are quite good.
