I am trying to compare two hard drives and do not know which is the better option. The 500GB 7200 rpm or the 1TB 5400RPM+32GB SSD for $100 more. The actual hard drives are not really a concern because I don't go over 300GB. I just play a few video games and schoolwork. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It looks to me that the HDD's are of a concern to you as you are looking at adding the SSD as well to offset the speed limitation of the 1TB HDD.
I would opt for the 1TB without SSD only from a pricing standpoint. If you are looking at performance I would opt for the 500GB 7200HDD and the 32GB SSD.
