Everything is installed on the SSD. Worth moving user home directories to the second HD if you're working with that much data. If you do decide to do that, do it before you do *anything* else.

System, Library, and Applications on the SSD, Users Folder and all associated data on the Spinning Disk.

Performance is awesome.

so i have to move the 'users' folder to the HDD.right ?

but will i benefit from the SSD if i open itunes/iphoto and my music/photos on the HDD ?



what about bootcamp ? can i install win7 on the SSD ?
i will use win7 mainly for games. games need to be installed in the 'program files' folder.
will i benefit from SSD if i did that ?

thanks for answering.
