Shall I agree or ask for an SSD hybrid? I'd appreciate your advice as this is a bit over my head :)

How long have you had your old Notebook?

You lose nothing by asking for a faster or Hybrid Drive

Shall I agree ............

Yes you should because the replacement is a significantly better laptop.

.......or ask for an SSD hybrid?

No, the laptop you're being offered has a 128GB solid-state drive plus a regular 1TB hard drive. It will perform much much faster than a 8GB hybrid drive.

I had it two years. Theoretically as it was most of the time in their service center being repaired. After they have exchanged the display, the keyboard, the mother board, my hard drive started acting up and I have demanded a more permanent solution. :)

Thanks Squirrel, That helps. I did not decipher the 128 SSD. :)
As I said: way above my head. :D
