This would make your FD relatively safe if your backup was kept up to date.

I think the FD reliability question needs to be put into perspective. Oh sure, FD is less reliable than a single drive, but how does that make daily usage any different? Even if someone chose a single drive...they'd still need a near-line backup anyway to protect their business! No difference.

- 2-SSDs? plus External ( keep OS on one and have room to keep my working files on the other)

Well, if you can afford this, seems like it would be the best, since you'd have done the best you can on speed, capacity, and redundancy.

If it helps, Ars Technica just published a review of the FD Mac mini.
