I still don't believe that a HDD can bottleneck such a system... I mean even if it's 5400RPM. :/ It might be faster when you use the hybrid drive but the 5400RPM/7200RPM drive probably wasn't really "bottlenecking" your computer. You know what i mean?

Limited write/read speed and poor access speeds can dramatically affect a systems performance.

THis is the first time Im hearing of a Hybrid Drive.

How does the mechanism differ from A normal drive and an SSD?

Not exactly sure, I just now it has both.

It's a spinning disc, with a large SSD cache I believe.

I assure you disks nowadays are probably one of the biggest bottlenecks on modern computers. Ive had a very similar experience with system speed, although I went for the RAID option rather than a different kind of disk. At the end of the day everything else has moved on whilst hdd have stayed the same for a good number of years now. The sizes have increase, however the general speed hasn't increased by much, although I appreciate caching has improved somewhat.
