Unhappy Internal Memory

Sorry for the noob question here, but if something reads... "1.05TB 7200 rpm Dual Hard Drive (SSD 300GB + 750GB 7200 rpm)", how many TB/GB does that come out to? How many via HDD & how many via SSD? Would this be 2.10TB on your HDD, and an additional 1050GB on your SSD then? That would be over 3TB's then!!?!!

1.05TB 7200 rpm Dual Hard Drive (SSD 300GB + 750GB 7200 rpm)
Simply means
An SSD with 300GB
+
Mechanical HD with 750GB
Totaling
1.05 TB

Well if that's the case, why's it cost so much? That's like an additional $750 or something!!! So just to be sure, how much space do I get with "2.128TB Multiple Drives (128GB mSATA SSD + 2x1TB 5400 rpm HDD)"? I'm obviously assuming 2.128, but I assumed the last one would be close to 3! This will already cost me an extra $400 or so. If this is smaller than 1.5 I'm gonna be p****d! I'd just get the stock model from Best Buy if nothing else then.

A SSD = Solid State Drive. Please do research on these to see why they cost so much more.

A 1 TB HDD is plenty of space (even assuming lots of music/movies/pics/etc).
