    My computer feels like its 1 big SSD drive. So far so good, surfing the web and running apps etc.. does feel significantly snappier than regular drive. Worth the extra bucks to get a turnkey solution. Using Safari is fast as heck going to different pages due to the SSD caching of temp files etc..

    Anyone using the Fusion macs? what do you think?

    No I'm not because the 27" aren't shipping but to me Fusion Drives are the perfect compromise.

    Safari is still network bound on some operations (it took a while for this reply page to load, for example) but all the apps are coming up faster. For example, it always took a minute or more for iTunes to open my very large library. Now it flashes by in a couple of seconds. Same for email and Safari on startup--of course, installed apps are surely on the SSD.
