Should I get an SSD in my new laptop?

Episode 1315 (19:20)

Steve from Apple Valley, CA

Steve is looking at a Dell Inspiron 17" laptop. Leo suggests getting a laptop with a smaller screen and then dock it to a larger screen at home. That way he can get a larger screen and not sacrifice portability. Leo says to get an SSD to make it faster and then use a spinning external drive for his data drive. A 512GB SSD will work just fine.
