Would Apple sale imacs with ssd only?OP:
I would not buy either of those.
You absolutely DO NOT WANT an iMac with only a platter-based hard drive inside.
It will be intolerably slow.
The 1tb fusion drive version is a little better, but it has a tiny 32gb flash portion that will quickly "fill up", and you'll again experience slower speeds.
I would suggest you find something with an SSD inside -- even the 256gb size (if price is a consideration). You can always add USB3 external storage if you need it.
Or a 2tb fusion drive model. This one has a 128gb SSD/flash portion along with the 2tb HDD portion...
Yes all macs can be configured with an ssd in a variety of sizes when ordered and they often come up on the refurb store as well.Would Apple sale imacs with ssd only?
Hands down the SSD wins in speed over any Fusion drive. I do prefer a 256GB SSD over a 3TB Fusion Drive any day and night, weekends included.
You prefer the 256 SSD over the 512 SSD?
Of course not. My point was that I do prefer the smaller SSD (256GB) over the bigger Fusion drive (3TB). If you can afford a 512GB SSD then go for it. In my case I wanted the iMac with 1TB internal SSD but the price increased $400 for extra 500GB so I decided to stay with 512GB SSD and buy an external Glyph Atom RAID 1TB SSD instead for the same $400. I also got a 4TB G-Drive USB-C for Time Machine.You prefer the 256 SSD over the 512 SSD?
All SSD iMacs are build to order and assembled in the USA (at least mine says that). Not even Apple Stores carries them. The only online retailer that carries SSD iMacs in stock and ready to ship is B&H Photo.Is there a store like B&H in Tampa, Fl where I can buy an iMac with a 512SSD stock?...
If money is an issue for larger SSD storage inside the machine, get the 256 gig SSD inside of your machine and buy cheaper external SSD storage like this one:
Yeap.. I just bought mine right now with B&H.. 512SSD In it.. now Im happyAll SSD iMacs are build to order and assembled in the USA (at least mine says that). Not even Apple Stores carries them. The only online retailer that carries SSD iMacs in stock and ready to ship is B&H Photo.
