Some of them.  Studio also installs its own kernel.

The answer probably depends on the support contract from system76.  I
would ask system76.

For light audio work I don't think so.  For me I do use a 7200 RPM drive
in my laptop. I do use VMWare workstation for work and my computer usage
tends to stress IO, so for me it was entirely worth it.

This answer probably depends on what exactly you are going to be doing
with this system.
