Macworld Looks at Hybrid Drives

These drives have had me curious for quite sometime, they take a small SSD (usually about 4GB) and combine it with a normal platter based HD.

Interesting, I wouldn’t buy this drive in lieu of an SSD (even given the price difference), but I would buy one instead of buying another ‘regular’ HD as a replacement (non-performance replacement, as in your last HD just died).
