    Hello, I'm currently planning to buy a iMac with Retina 5K display soon. Which one should I buy with 256 GB flash or with 3 TB fusion drive. I know flash is faster but is small, This why I am thinking about a WD My Book 4TB External Is there a big difference between Fusion drive and flash drive? Please guys suggest me which option is best for me.

    Thanks :)

    Depends! If you have large video & music collections then go with the Fuson Drive.

    However if you have an external or NAS and keep your media libraries on them then go with the pure SSD.

    I have an internal SSD (+3TB hard disk) and an external hard disk rack (9TB) for my media libraries.

    My next iMac will only have a larger SSD and no fusion drive for sure.
