Does an ssd provide substantial improvement in these cases?

It should help. Nevertheless, when talking about performance, it is difficult to predict, mainly because in a computer there are many things going on and many layers involved.

I have a couple of computers equipped with SSD, if you want, if you send me some benchmarks I can run them and see if I get any speedup.
