Question about OS, and SSD on y480

Hello, im thinking about ordering the ideapad y480 with the 1TB and 32GB of SSD, and read somewhere that it would be a good idea to install the OS in the SSD and other programs and applications in the 1TB hdd, do you think this will work, and is it a good idea. And if it is possible, how should i describe it in my order so that people at lenovo install the OS in the SSD and not in the hhd... is that possible?


btw im still not sure if ordering right now because i hear there might be coming a y480 with a 650m nvidia gpu, but i dont know if it would fit into my <1,000US$ budget. Do you think it will? and does anyone know when will it be arriving? thnanks!

The link you provided needs to be updated. It doesn't work.
