I am currently waiting for my new iMac 27" non-retina to arrive, I have ordered it via my workplace salary maxing scheme and saved (I hope) a shed load of money! Only standard spec models were available (no customisation) but I'm aware I can add RAM fairly easily if I need to later. The problem is that I have been reading the forum and the universal wisdom seems to be that an SSD or fusion drive is absolutely essential and that the standard HD is......well, frankly from my reading here, absolutely useless to the point of not actually even functioning! I find it hard to believe Apple would sell a £1,500 machine that doesn't work but I have read various horror stories that say they do - surely not? Is this correct? I don't have any option other than the standard 1TB HD if I'm to use my workplace scheme, which isn't totally essential but I would prefer to continue with my order as it makes good financial sense for me. My uses are pretty basic - internet, music, simple photo editing, iWork documents - nothing fancy and certainly no gaming. I'm massively excited and can't wait for it to arrive but the HD question is niggling me. So would the 1TB HDD be ok for me? Is it difficult to add an SSD or fusion drive later if needed?
