That's what I do too. I have one server (see next) that has all of that plus RAID1. My laptops as just as above (even Mini9, which makes it a tad slow, but livable), my other servers/workstations are RAID1 + LVM in that config.

I want to say KISS, but that's obviously an oxymoron as soon as either mdadm or LVM enters the picture. :-) Still, the protection against the moving-part-that-WILL-fail and flexibility of LVM are worth it.
