    Was fusion drive created by Apple? I recall a keynote when it was mentioned. I'm curious because it is kind of genius to have the most used things on your computer like the OS and some other things on SSD so it boots up quickly and have the rest on a normal hard drive.

    Anyways thanks, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Yes, Apple pioneered it and incorporated the elements in OS X that intelligently shuffles files between SSD and HDD.

    Intel developed a similar technology called Smart Response before Fusion Drive. Not sure if Apple was aware of it at the time they started developing FD however. Not that it matters much.
