iMac Custom Set up advice
I'm finally getting an iMac to replace my PC.
I am customizing the 27" and have a few queries:
Is fusion drive only available at purchase? or can you pay for them to put an SSD in later (probably cost a lot). I'm thinking I should get this, 1TB hdd is average but I assume I can update that later.
Definitely getting the upgraded graphics card as that can't be installed later.
Now for those two upgrades the trade off might have to be the CPU.
I think 3.6ghz is fine but I don't like the fact it's an i5 and not an i7.
I'm going to leave the ram at 8GB because that is a cheap upgrade.
At the moment I'm a student, most probably looking into 2D work but that could change to 3D (Maya, ZBrush) etc.
If anyone would like to drop some advice, that would be appreciated

Apple will not add a SSD later - buy Apple Authorized Deal should be able to. The one closes to me said they would add a SSD into my iMac - I have yet to take them up on the offer.

for the I5 vs I7 dilemma read the below discussion
With regards to aftermarket customization I have asked an apple autorized repair center and he quoted for the job GBP 75+vat + the cost of the SSD (but i can buy my own SSD elseware if I am not happy with theirs).
