I wouldn't buy a computer without an SSD these days. Think about it, the hard drive is several orders of magnitude slower than everything else in your PC and will massively slow it down. 95% of the time you'll be waiting for something, it'll be the hard drive.
Yes, the SSD is more expensive and has less capacity, but you can always add a storage hard drive later; they are cheap and easy to add to an existing build.
