Right... i see your point but, lets be honest here... If you are going to buy an OS drive, i assume you got a "store" drive like 1TB+ HDD. Is that hard to just do some tweaks to the OS (it doesn't take more than 5min of your precious time) rly? But then... you still say, "your SSD will die in a couple of time because you have limited write cycles". I agree with you, but just think about the usage of an OS drive: 1- Install the OS 2- Install all the drivers/programs/games and updates. 3- Open the apps/games and enjoy it. Ok, in the start you might do some 200GB writes in a day, but you will not be re-installing the programs every day, will you? Speaking for myself, i have done 250GB writes on the first day, and 2 months later i have 376GB writes out of 360TB (and i have not deactivated some settings in windows). The only reason you can get in trouble with an SSD is some random firmware issue. With my opinion stated above, i complement with the fact that you dont have to defragment an SSD nor wait for the seek of an HDD, experiencing the real deal of a fast computer with a proper Disk Drive!
