Thanks - nice appetite-whetter! Some IT-savvy friends have implemented SSDs for the OS and some apps and HDDs for their main storage and are pleased with the results. On question I have ref Hybrid drives would be - who decides what goes where? The synopsis of the Hybrid Drives paper (which you have no doubt read in full) shows a section on Automatic data placement - can you tell us more about how that works??

As long as their cent/GByte metric is significally lower HDDs will not be retired.
