Thx for the feedback !
I have another question (started another thread about it but no answer) : I will be buying a laptop for Linux and will not be installing Windows as part of a dual boot. The laptop I have in mind is a Lenovo Thinkpad E530 which sports a hybrid SSD/HDD drive (16Gb SSD, 1Tb HDD).
So, suppose I would be running ONLY Mint 14 Cinnamon, will Mint support the SSD part as cache or will I see two drives ? Some of these drives have the SSD cache controlled by the drive itself, others have cache controlled by the OS (which is Windows by default). If the cache is supported by Mint, no problem, if not, what's the best way to make use of that hybrid drive in Mint ?
Or should I go for a laptop that has separate SSD/HDD drives ? That way, I can install /root on the SSD (preferably get a 128SSD then) and /home on the HDD...
