Optimal HD usage for Photoshop and Lightroom

I do both professional photo and video work, and was always taught to have separate system, media (where you're editing your files), and scratch drives while editing.

Is this still accurate? I'm about to buy a new powerhouse laptop (I've always been a Mac guy, but the Dell XPS 15 is a great value), and was wondering if this method has changed. Do you use your internal drive for editing photos, or do you use the method I described earlier? The laptop will mostly be used for photo work (occasional video editing/After Effects as well).

I would appreciate any suggestions/workflows you may have. I plan to tether to my laptop, and possibly edit remotely on occasion.

Thank you!

Me, too. It's a 2009 with 2010 firmware. It has a pair of striped Sata III SSDs (240 GB) as a system drive, four striped Sata II SSDs (1.2 TB) as a separate home folder drive. and dual 3.3Ghz Xeons, plus a Terabyte HD as an internal Time Machine and 16GB of RAM. It uses the SSDs as scratch, no separate scratch devices.

It's hard to imagine anything faster or more competent for PS.

Though not a professional video editor I am, but still I am answering here. I do use the same system both for my photo and video editing works.
