It would make more sense to have an internal data/program storage drive than an external due to speed alone and access times.
Like for instance most people (or gamers) have a 120-240GB SSD and then a 1TB drive for extraneous material like movies, music ect. They would also have very large installs on this drive like the Steam/Valve folder (mine is over 500GB) or other software that is large but doesn't exactly take advantage of an SSD. A lot of games do not get a loading time decrease due to them being typical console ports and made to use the slow speeds of an optical drive. The video in my post shows what you'll look forward to having an SSD.
