Hmm. At some point in the process you might want to think about how to convince that awesome programmer to work for you and not for somebody else.

I can't second Jeff's excitement about hybrid drives. I think they combine the disadvantages of HDD and SSD: seek penalty/shock sensitivity & short life-time/limited number of write cycles. My SSD moment was when I bought a new laptop and I absolutely love it. But I installed a RAM disk, disabled Hibernate and spent some hours tweaking OS and application settings to relocate temporary files so I can sleep without worrying too much about MLC and write amplification. The biggest problem for adaptation of smart storage (of which hybrid may be a part of) is that there is little available if anything for categorization of file persistence requirements. BTW, would you enable defragmentation for hybrid drives?
