Transferring 40 GB to an external disk, and whole system lags

Why? Is it because my petty 5400 RPM laptop drive is fully booked, copying 40 GB of files?

Would having an internal SSD prevent this?

Yes and yes, although if the SSD were the only storage device inside the system, reading 40 GB of data from it would still cause a slowdown in overall performance. It just might not be as bad as with a regular hard drive.

Yes, and more than likely it is also dependent on your CPU.
