    Lord Almighty! Thank you! I hate my Y570 for exactly this reason.

    Will it not be simpler to use the SD drive mainly for the operating system, drivers and software applications and use the mechanical for storage of files? I believe this will prevent notebooks and computers for crashing and will allow a much faster startup time and give plenty of storage space for our all our files including media files etc….

    I am really interested in buying a new hybrid hard drive and use it this way, do you think it will work?

    I would suggest either keeping the SSD and HDD separate, or going with a true hybrid hard drive like a Seagate Momentus XT.

    mSATA pricing is still quite high, so on a laptop you either have to choose a very small mSATA SSD, drop the HDD completely, or use an optical drive replacement bay that allows the use of a second 2.5-inch disk drive.

    For most people, I think the Momentus XT will give you the best bang for your buck. But, if you want a true SSD, the mSATA bay is the cleanest (albeit, expensive) route.
