Seagate 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive ST1000LM014
If you want higher capacities than what the new 15,000 RPM platters can offer, but still the speedy boot-times and high initial performance of an SSD, then you will have to go for the Solid State Hybrid Drive. Seagate's 1TB SSHD offers an amazing way to boot quickly and initialize your drive for fast short-term needs, but offers an impressive capacity compared to faster drives. The SSHD claims to be up to five times faster than a 5400 RPM drive you'd typically find in a laptop, but this is only as it uses its small solid state cache to help boot OSes and initialize programs. The rest of the drive is still a regular-old 5400RPM drive and may slug with large file transfers. Still, with a high capacity, fast boot speed, and a fair price, the Seagate SSHD is still a good choice for many.
