    What a week I've been having. I'm sure many of you have seen my posts, and just look away thinking, "What on earth..."

    Anyway, I'm here to say, if you want a particular model device, iMac or otherwise, simply buy that model the FIRST time round (if you can).

    I just formatted the SSD drive, and set it for use with Time Machine :)

    I would have gone with at least the 2 TB Fusion drive. 24 GB is not very much SSD space, and the 2 TB gets you over 5 times that (128 GB).

    But, I'm sure it's an improvement over no SSD at all. Incredibly stupid that Apple charges $100 for a 24 GB SSD, which should have been made standard across the lineup instead.

    Be it that it may, I bought what I could afford. But, making sure I had some form of SSD. I can still use an external SSD, if I wanted too...

    Congrats, is the performance more on par with your expectations now that you have a Fusion drive?
