No. Spinning disks are not superior to SSD's. It doesn't matter if it comes with some ultrafast thunderbolt connection, the speed of the disk itself is not fast enough. Spinning disks are still great for mass storage and are fine for using either playback or recording. But reading and writing simultaneously will drop the speed to a fraction of any SSD.

That being said, you can still work fine using spinner disks. We mixed entire features on them back int he day. But with today's SSD prices there is absolutely no reason at all to use a spinner disk as a work disk.
