SSD drives for system and libraries on new Mac ok?

SSD drives fast enough to have Mac OS and libraries on the internal SSD 4TB of a new Macbook Pro? I know with the "old" drives it was recommended to have system and sample libraries strictly separated, but I am wondering if this is over with the SSD drives. I mean there is no more mechanical action in the drives.

Anybody tried and any experience on that? Thanks in advance!

Mix away - there is no seek latency with an SSD, a DAW will get no-where near maxing out the bandwidth available to the average SSD. Having multiple drives is no longer relevant for performance reasons in DAW applications.
