The best option for a laptop is to use a SSD for the hard drive with the OS on it. Next best is the hybrid with an amount of flash memory to act as a cache and theat will make the drive a little faster then the normal hard drive.
If I have a laptop then my setup woulld be to have a 256gb SSD in the laptop for the OS and games and any important programs, and a seperate external drive for storage. But that's me and what my setup would be. Everybody's budget is different and also the needs of what is to be stored so you have to decide acording to your budget.
