    Yep, it is a great purchase. Currently the 1TB has the best price per GB. If I had your gift cards, thats what I would do.

    However, if your model supports it, you should consider 1TB SSD + 1TB HDD in fusion drive

    Fusion doesn't interest me much, my plan is to eliminate as much mechanical moving parts as possible.
    Will there be a problem with the temp sensor or fan speed with removing the mechanical drive?

    Yes, it will be full speed from my understanding (if you replace the stock HDD). I think when people upgrade their iMacs, they typically leave the stock HDD where it is, and simply plug their SSD into a new port and boot from that instead.
