    Just ordered a 27" iMac to replace my old 17" 2006 iMac :)

    I have ordered it with a 3TB Fusion Drive and was wondering if there as anything I need to do differently when using it? i.e. when I copy over my music library that will fill up the SSD part of the drive so should I install the apps I will be using before copying over my data or does it not matter?

    Nope, there's no need to do anything special, just use your computer as you normally will. The system will see what you access the most and put that stuff on the SSD without you even knowing it.
