    I received my iMac 27" and am regretting not having BTO Fusion Drive.

    Can Apple still do the upgrade, so the warranty will cover the SSD as well? Or it must do via an authorized service provider?

    How is the charge in general?

    why not just take it back and repurchase with Fusion?

    You have 2 options to get the Fusion Drive iMac:

    1) Return your machine and re-order (since Apple will not install a Fusion Drive in a new machine


    2) Bring your machine to an authorized Apple reseller and ask to install one, however, it will not be covered under Apple's warranty.

    I do not return the iMac, and purchase a new one since

    1) I do want to wait for another 3-4 weeks

    2) Returning goods of unopened item costs 15% and opened item cost 25% of the value here in Hong Kong:mad:

    Seems that I have to go by ASP.
    I searched on Apples' HP for ASP and one of the Retail Shop is listed. I wonder if it is normal?
