    So I'm wanting to get an iMac to last like 5 years, the same as my current iMac.
    Is it worth spending $250 for a fusion drive now,
    or instead waiting until Hybrid Drives catch up to what the fusion drive can offer and installing that in 1-2 years, and/or waiting for NAND flash to become so cheap an upgrade in 1-2 years would be justified?

    Go fusion now.

    I say that as a hybrid drive owner.

    Hybrid is currently "good", but fusion will be much faster, more often.

    Only reason i dont have fusion now is due to 2011 MBP 15" SATA bugs.

    Waiting 1-2 years means you'll be using our new iMac for almost half of its usable life in a much slower state....
