    Not a chance. SSHDs are very overrated and overpriced. I usually ONLY suggest they be used in a laptop with only 1 internal SATA bay AND if you need more capacity than a normal SSD can provide.

    Keep in mind an SSD will ONLY improve general responsiveness. NOT any other form of performance boost(like gaming).

    the problem is my laptop has 2 sata slots one for HDD n one for optical drive so one more not possible
  4. Then ask yourself, is 9000R worth a smal increase in responsiveness that you will get for that.

    That is not a problem, it is an opportunity! I replaced my HD with an SSD and, using a bracket, replaced my optical drive with the HD! Speed and lots of storage, best of both worlds!

    Edit: Sry, got the quotes all wrong!
  6. If you basically only use a few applications all the time then you would see some benefit from an SSHD in addition to the ssd boot speed.But if you're the type that you are gaming one day, browsing the internet the next, watching streaming shows, then working on a video... then an SSHD would only give you quicker boot times and your money would be better spent on a 7200rpm harddrive. (I think all the laptop SSHD's are 5400rpm drives)
