Would an SSD upgrade to a P4 computer stretch its usefulness a few more years or should I just upgrade the platform?

I'm surprised that I haven't seen more opinions on this. Ideally, yes, replace the whole thing and use an SSD in the replacement. But do you think an SSD alone would be a significant update to these older machines and make it feel snappier?

Well, programs would load and save a little more quickly. And the system response would appear a little snappier. But I don't think that it is a worthwhile expenditure.

I think that it would be be better to use the money to speed the replacement cycle.
