    Hello all

    I'm trying to decipher what I've been reading recently. There seems to be varying opinions on whether the 3tb drives will be partionable, and therefore bootcampable. I understand the fusion drive likely will not be partitioned due to the nature of it. I am buying my first fully spec'd out 27" ASAP but was hoping to bootcamp the hdd to allow for some windows gaming etc. I've heard the 1tb hdd is an option since its below the 2.2TB limit for bootcamp/partition. What isn't clear is whether the 1tb with fusion is an option. Can anyone advise?

    According to the knowledgebase article at Apple.com, 1TB Fusion Drives can have one partition added, and it will be entirely on the HDD portion. You can install Bootcamp/Windows on this partition.

    I do not see why you would not be able to put it on the HDD partition either. Should be workable.
