I am considering the Lenovo U410.
From everything I have read [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], It seems that Ubuntu can be best installed by turning off the RAID0 configuration and doing a wipe. I have no interest in keeping Windows, but I want to confirm something that remains unclear to me.
Once I have disabled RAID, will I be able to access the SS Cache and the HDD individually as one would expect? My ideal configuration would be to have root (/) mounted on the SSD, and /home mounted to the HDD. Is that straightforward once RAID is disabled? Would I get the performance boost I expect from a SSD?
Finally, are there any other factors to consider relating to compatibility?
Thank you in advance.
