Nah, WereCatf is right. The SSS only helps in program loading and battery life.

Your laptop likely had a 4200 RPM drive which have always been slow as hell, thus the CPU would be sitting around idling while the painfully slow HDD located and loaded the data.

You'd have also seen a sizable performance increase in swapping to a 7200RPM drive. Not as much as the SSD, but still quite noticeable in human time.
