As you've already ordered this is just for anyone finding this thread. I have a 1 TB hybrid drive, it has 128G of SSD and a normal 1TB mechanical drive. It uses the SSD as a cache and after a couple of days works out which files to cache. I use Photoshop a lot and it went from about 1 min to load to 2 seconds. Worth considering.

I did see those, but the performance is quite a lot lower than a full SSD, and I'm planning using the SSD as the OS drive and an HDD as the data drive.

I have the 1TB hybrid as my main drive and a 3TB second drive for data. I was surprised that W7 can't handle above 2TB as the system drive. Does anyone know the limit on W10?

W 10 system is limited to 2TB disk, same as W 7.
When you format your data disk to NTFS with sector size of 4K you can have a partition of up to 16TB.
