Should I alter my order?

Ordered an i7, 27" iMac, 680mx with a 3tb mechanical hdd. Starting to wish I had ordered the 1tb or even 3tb hyperdrive. Ordered on the 14th December, am I right in thinking if I altered the drive I would essentially be out back to the end of the queue?

Would you change it?

Get the fusion drive. It'll be worth it.

You'd go to the end of the queue I'd imagine, as you are cancelling the previous order. On the contrary, it will be worth the alteration, and when you receive the product, you don't want to be unhappy. You can change the RAM, not the HDD.

I would probably go the External SSD way.

Get the hyperdrive

I'd rather have that before the i7 or 680

Hyperdrive almost sounds like something from a SciFi series XD
You can always get an external SSD instead of altering your order(it'll most likely be cheaper and also get you a faster SSD with more storage than the Fusion Drive SSD-part).
