Computers can and do last that long, but "expecting" a computer to last 6+ years is quite an unrealistic thought at the time of purchase. Particularly when you're talking about the need for high end software (translate high $) such as you will be using. My guess - a 60 minute render/encode on the 2.2 would save you 2-4 minutes max on the 2.3.

Everyone here that has put an SSD in their Macs pretty much love them. I'm with chas and am still waiting for the price to drop and putting my money into 7200RPM 500-750GB drives for my notebook.

If an SSD size will not be large enough to store all your data and you'll be using a USB or FW external drive for additional storage space, then you've just slowed down your read/write times vs an internal 7200 drive by a considerable margin.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
