I own a asus and a toshiba and I find the asus to run VS better.
Are the project files on the SSD? I'd worry about faster death of the drive in that case. You can only write to solid state memory so many times before failure.
That's why they are best as boot devices, not document drives. They should certainly make the PC boot and launch apps fast.
I think my new laptop allows for two drives. So the idea of an SSD boot/apps drive and an HDD documents drive is attractive.
Just remember you don't have to select a laptop just because it comes with an SSD. You can buy oneand switch it out just like any other drive.
