Installation of Windows 8.1 on the 32gb SSD in the Inspiron 14z

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 5423 which is a i5, 4gb ram, 500gb HDD and 32gb SSD.

I did read a few posts in the forum where the experts suggested that Windows should not be installed on the SSD and should only be used for caching purpose. However when I inquired on twitter the Dell Care handle said that they generally follow installation of the operating system on the MSata drive. This has got me confusing. 

Please recommend if it is alright to install windows 8.1 on the SSD .. or I should be installing the OS on the 500gb hard drive and use the SSD only for caching purpose.
