Using SSD as both boot and storage?


I planning to buy two WD Blue SSD (sata) for my modest PC and a laptop. Is it ok to use it without a extra drive? because I read that SSDs don't last long as Mechanical ones.

Yes, it's fine.  If you're worried about data loss, you should back up your data anyways.  Regardless of expectations, a drive failure can hit anybody at any time.  Just be aware that if you get a single drive and it fulfills all of your needs, chances are you're overpaying for storage: you get a little benefit from storing stuff on an SSD versus a hard disk, but not enough to justify the extra cost.  Outside of operating system files, only large games or projects really benefit from SSDs.  With pictures and documents, you're unlikely to really notice a difference unless you're an enthusiast.
