i have like hundreds of video files which i would like to convert into mp4 for seamless playback across all my iDevices. My current machine, a MacBook pro 2.4ghz, with 4gb ram, bundled HDD and Snow Leopard takes about an hour to convert each 700 mb avi file into an mp4 using quicktime.


I've been looking forward to buy an SSD for sometime now and found one on that fits my budget. I was wondering if doing it on an SSD would have any significant effect on the speed of conversion?



MacBook 7,1, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iPhone 3G - iOS 4.2.1
