Fusion Drive and resale value
Thinking about how this may be the last version of HDD iMacs, I was assuming this would decrease the value significantly, and it would be hard to sell in 4 or 5 years. Then I started thinking that the fusion may not be such a bad idea. But now I'm wondering if the fusion, a fancy feature that we've all wondered what happens when half fails, would decrease the value even more than a HDD. What do you guys think?
I really want SSD, but won't be able to afford 768GB. Do you think thunderbolt external SSD is the best boot drive option?

You're talking about a 128GB + 1TB drive, ie Fusion Drive.
In 5 years a 2TB SSD might probably be cheaper than a regular 1TB drive today.
In electronics... One just can't predict or even try to.
Grey computer which does complicated stuff.
Cell phone that can talk to me. (Seriously).

The SSD and HDD are separate units that are tied together with software. If one fails, it will be inconvenient, but you can fix the problem by replacing he failed one. I'm sure there will be detailed instructions in 4-5 years explaining exactly how to do it.
