Decent deal but it seems to be the normal price on Amazon  here

You are right wow I guess they just dropped the price over at Amazon.

I am not aware of the full benefits of this, hence the confusion followed by a question.

A decent 2TB USB 3.0 portable can be bought for $70 or less, and not only does it give you an additional 2TB, it is not tied down to one laptop.
This replaces the 1TB already in the laptop, giving you only 1TB additional, is tied down to just that laptop, and costs $20 more.

What's the upside?

It has the appearance of of SSD drive performance when you don't venture out the portion of the drive that is most frequently used as it is substituted with a small solid state area hence giving you performance experience. It otherwise performs as a normal magnetic hard disk drive when you do find yourself having to venture outside the SSD area. Think caching for with solid state for your most frequently used files. It does make you boot faster (than magnetic HDD) anyway.

A 2TB SSD costs ~$730. This is a hybrid drive that has 8GB of SSD storage of the most commonly used applications & OS and the same amount of storage for $90.
