Default Seagate thinks Hybrid Drives Will Outlive Solid-State Drives

Seagate, one of the world's largest maker of hard disk drives, said that solid-state drives (SSDs) will be survived by hybrid drives that feature both flash memory and traditional magnetic media. Moreover, according to Seagate, only a fraction of expensive computers feature SSDs.
"I would say though that from what we know of the offering for example Apple, the percentage of their units that they sell with SSDs versus HDDs is a tiny fraction. I think it’s under 3%, certainly under 5%. [...] I think as Seagate introduced hybrid drive last quarter, you get basically the features and function of SSD at more like disc drive cost and capacity," said Steven Luczo, chief executive officer of Seagate, during a conference call with financial analysts.

that's because the people buying the expensive computers are not always very computer knowledgeable with tech from today, they know about faster CPUs, more RAM and better video cards, as this info has been bombarded on them for the last several years, SSDs are now territory; give it some time, and you'll see more SSDs inside expensive machines, which at the same time, makes them fast also , not just expensive
