I'm going to buy a laptop for Linux Mint (finally decided )
It's a BTO with Core i7, 12Gb of RAM, nVidia 650 with Optimus and a 256Gb SSD/1Tb 7200 rpm combo.
I'm going to install the /root directory on the SSD of course with the /home directory on the HDD for storing all my photographs, music, and... games.
Which leads me to my question : can I force Steam games to be installed on the HDD ? If not, I'm afraid my SSD will fill up pretty fast...
