Second choice with games of said choice on SSD.

^^ditto.
The ssd will provide a very noticeably boost in system responsiveness, and game load times. 2 x 2.5'' raid hdd's will run hot in a laptop.

Apparently it's an Intel. No sweat.

MSI Global - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

If that was mine I'd pull the HDD and add another matching SSD in RAID-0.

Nice book by the way. When I saw the first few websites that listed it as 11.6" I was jealous until I realized it was 17" like any other dual-2.5" SATA laptop.

I'm waiting for multi-mSATA books. :)

Single SSD will be faster than two mechanical drives in RAID 0

Yep, and 2 SSDs in RAID-0 will be even faster.
