I picked up a Mac Mini with Quad Core, and added 16GB of memory. Plan is to make it a workstation for me to use. Right now my biggest bottleneck though is from IO when running several VM's in Vmware Fusion. I can either build a Fusion Drive with a 256GB SSD using the 1TB drive thats inside the Mac Mini, or I can just go buy a 512SSD for a bit more money. The idea of the Fusion drive is really really alluring to me, so I'm tempted to try that, but I'm curious how much the Fusion Drive would help with VMWare. My thought being performance increases I would imagine would be better because VMWare would be paging to the SSD in theory. Also with VMWare Fusion set to split VMDK's at 2GB, the most frequently used segments should fit inside of what Fusion Drive looks for as far as optimizing by keeping in the SSD. Thoughts?
