Hybrid vs. SSD
I wrote a blog recently on http://blog.macguy.info/ talking about SSD, vs Hybrid drives. I couldn't really tell much difference between hybrid and standard hard drives in my testing. SSD was a huge jump and to moderate the cost and keep massive storage I went with removing the SuperDrive from my Macbook Pro and put a 500GB mechanical and a 250 GB SSD. Music and Movies live on the mechanical and everything else on SSD. It works great and is a more reasonably priced option.
