I live from paycheck to paycheck. I understand that if you buy a laptop for editing videos it would behoove a person to buy the top of the line I7 processor. I get that, I understand that wisdom and I'm good with that idea. A top of the line high end I7 will tack on an extra two or three hundred dollars (maybe more). Luckily I can sort of afford the extra cost, and so when the time comes I'll go ahead and configure a laptop with the best, most expensive I7 that Intel has to offer.
On the other hand an SSD will tack on another three hundred dollars (and maybe more) and wow the idea of that hurts for people like me who are just starting out in affiliate marketing and are just getting by, living from paycheck to paycheck, and eating Top Ramen for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And so I was wondering if an SSD would greatly speed up the rendering process when editing videos. I wonder if an SSD would have much of an impact on the life of a person who edits videos? Can you answer this question by giving a percentage figure, please do. For example, would an SSD enhance the rendering process a feeble 2% (with no real impact, a total waste of money)? Or would it be somewhere around 75% (a huge impact, you'd be a dumb fool not to opt for an SSD)? That's what I was wondering and again this question may not be easy to answer for the reasons mentioned above including timing: I don't think SSD's are really prevalent in our generation the way microwave ovens, cell phones, German shepherds, and sunglasses are, in other words this question might be a lot easier to answer in 2020 when the price of an SSD comes down, if they ever come down
