Ok thanks, User.

So there is no technical reason to have a mechanical hard disk at all, but it is down to cost particulary if we want a high capacity?

If the pc is used almost exclusively for Sierra plus a few word documents and not a great deal more, maybe a lower capicity SSD would do?

And there's no real need then for a second drive of any kind, in that situation, unless it has to store more - videos etc?

Is it definitely a proven fact that, with the latest SSDs (eg Intel), that an SSD is very likely to have a shorter life than a good hard drive?
