Personally I never recommend Hybrid drives as they are not really any faster than a normal HDD, and certainly not worth the money.

Not significantly, and they fail MUCH easier than a normal HDD. For the money, get a normal HDD.

Ideally you would want a 120gb SSD and a separate HDD. If that is not in the budget, get a normal HDD.

I have that SSHD myself, yeah slightly faster, but nothing compared to an SSD, I'd advise save for an SSD, I regret having an SSHD, boot times are just as long, just no hanging around on the welcome screen anymore, thats about it. In terms of game loading times etc, not much of a difference.

Get the HDD 100% It will last 10x as long and be WAY less hassle.

I have a 256 GB SSD. It's amazing. Restarting the computer is a joy. I will never go back. I also don't need much space though, and cost wasn't an issue. And in the event of a crash, I have everything saved to the cloud, so a simple reformat won't be an issue. It's all about how you use your computer.
