I have been looking into upgrading my hard drive on my Late 2010 Macbook 7.1 to a SSD but I found a Hybrid Hard Disk Drive that is a tad bit less expensive I was wondering if this was just as good? Or is it worth is to pay 40 or so more dollars for a regular SSD?

Thanks! Here is the link to the Hybrid Hard Disk Drive

    A hybrid hard disk has got a small SSD to install Mac OS X there and a HDD to put all the files. If you want speed and you haven't got a lot of apps, the hybrid hard disk is better than a SSD because you will save money. However, if you want a faster performance, go for the SSD
