Big A has the ASUS VivoBook F510UA at the lowest price ever $569.99, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB SSD+1TB HDD. I'd been eyeing the one without SSD for $509 and planned on adding a SSD myself but with the price drop I pulled the trigger on this. Saved me the hassle of putting the SSD in.

If you use the hard drive to only store the files (videos, photos, audios and all) and all the programs are installed in SSD, you will see good performance during running as well (compared to having hard drive only).

If you don't need 1TB, maybe consider VivoBook S510 Laptop. It's mostly same, but 0.1 inch slimmer and comes with 256GB SSD.

It was on sale for $549 the other day.

You are correct, it's for boot up speed. Put all your programs on the SSD along with the already installed Windows OS and you should boot up in 10 seconds more or less.

Can someone explain how having the 128gig SSD along with the one terabyte hard drive makes this machine faster or more efficient? I'm not sure what the benefit of having two separate drives is but I assume it's for boot up speed?

Thanks for the explanation. After the machine is booted up and running is the speed of access determined by the SSD or the hard drive? Or a little of both?

You got me on that one, I'm no computer geek so will have to defer to the resident experts.

There's no additional performance benefit.
Program access speed will be solely determined by SSD (unless you install programs on the HDD)
Additional HDD is only for additional storage. Nothing more.

I wonder how they got the weight down to 3.7 on a 15" laptop. I have a 15" Asus that weighs in at about 5.6 pounds.

It's foot print is that of 14 inch with better screen to body ratio (or so do they claim).

The SSD should be used for the main operating system (Windows) and any other applications that you'll use - Photoshop, web browsers, Microsoft Office, etc. The 1 TB hard drive should be used for storage such as for photos, videos, music, documents, etc.

The SSD is constantly being accessed, where as the storage drive is not. The SSD is very fast, and it fixes the bottleneck in most PCs nowadays...when replacing a standard hard drive. Sometimes just replacing the drive with a new SSD on an older machine breathes new life into it.
