I would definitely recommend an SSD if at all possible. Boot times are halved, the OS is snappy, programs load in a fraction of the time. And if she plays any single player games then she will appreciate the inter-level loads taking only half the time.

That's not a hybrid. The Seagate "XT"'s are the hybrids, and those are being replaced by the "SSHD" brand at some point. Kind of odd since they were announced awhile ago now, but I don't see any yet.

You're right, on both counts. Apologies, I didn't check the drive quite as rigorously as I should have.
