    Confusion over fusion
    Hi Guys,
    My purchase of an iMac is not too many months away, (failing any fiscal cliffs I may stumble on),

    Along with many other options,
    There appears we now have an array of drives to choose from, namely
    SSD, Fusion and "normal" ? I think that is a SATA drive but that's a description by the "technology challenged", me!)

    From what I have read so far,
    SSD, fastest but smaller storage
    Fusion, almost as fast as SSD but bigger storage but not as much as SATA
    SATA, old technology, moving parts etc

    I guess the question here would be,
    "Out of the bunch, which is the most robust?"
    I'm thinking of doing the back-up on two portable drives as I'm doing now and if one SATA drive dies, I have another

    Fusion is new to me, never heard of it before
    Regards,
    Gary

    Read this article from PC Mag: LINK There are also many other articles explaining the Fusion drive, what it is, and how it works. Google, Google, Google......
