No need to CC me. If it makes sense to find your answer, I will. :)

*hot* data. Which for me means data which is accessed often, mostly 
randomly, not sequential.

While I still currently have all music files and photos also on SSD, 
albeit not in BTRFS RAID 1, but on a single, the larger one of the SSDs 
in this laptops, I also see that an SSD does not add much benefit to 
store sequential access data that I change rarely. I consider it a bit 
of a luxury having it that way.

It adds to one important thing for me however:

A *silent* laptop :)

I also still use hard disks for backup storage for exactly the reason 
you stated. But given the current price drops I am reconsidering even 
that. Anyway, there is no hurry to change anything regarding that.

Sure it is not. That is part of the reason I thought its pretty 
pointless.

Okay, I can´t say much about this. As I do not know what the utility 
actually displays, whether it somehow considers memory processes share 
with other processes and so on. Your numbers are not even from a Linux 
box and you did not state that unless I missed that you did. I really 
wonder for what purpose you mentioned the number in the first place. Its 
quite meaningless for a Linux box.

Okay, that it at least a Firefox with the Quantum engine. According to 
what I read it can handle an insane amount of tabs efficiently.
