Good news, but HDDs won't be obsolete until SSDs become dirt cheap. The price gap will keep HDDs on shelves for quite a while.

The SSD main drive and HDD second drive will likely become much more common and everyone will have at least a small main SSD pretty soon. The form factors for an mSATA SSD and a laptop 2.5" HDD make it feasible for laptops, too.
