SSD and HDD in one computer

  ferula 12:00 15 Aug 2012

I have memories of a major manufacturer bringing out a computer that has a SSD for a quick startup, which then switches to a HDD for storage.

Can anyone else remember this----- or am I dreaming????

That is the set up I have in my three PC's. In my gaming rig I have a 128GB M4 SSD for operating system and programs and two 1TB Sata HDD's for storage this is not a new idea

Hi Chronus Thanks for the courtesy of your reply. I am an oldie of 85yrs and have not the courage to try and install the components myself that you have done. I just had the feeling that one of the major manufacturers had marketed either a laptop or desktop that already had these components installed.

I think you will find that most high end set ups will come with an SSD these days. Yes you are a little older than me 60. But I build all my own PC's.
