msata SSD and Virtualization


Are we there yet?
I just bought an ultrabook- Lenovo U410. This ultrabook comes with an SSD and an HDD in RAID-0 configuration. SSD 24GB in size and is used for cache purpose by Intel Rapid Storage software which makes eveything from Booting to starting programs (like Chrome) very fast. Now I want to use linux on VMWare Player, but since SSDs have short write cycles I'm afraid to do so since everything is first written on the SSD and then on HDD. Now please guide me if I should continue and use Linux on VMWare.
I searched online and understood that since virtual machine's files are large, there will be a lot of reads and writes on the SSD, that's why I'm worried about it.
