If space for fusion, why no two SSD option?

    It seems that being able to have two internal SSD's would be great. If you can fit a fusion drive in there with a 3.5" hard drive, why can't I get two SSD's?

    Pretty sure they use PCI express SSD's, so the case still only has 1 drive bay.

    Pretty serious, yeah. The only real benefit that comes to my mind is having 2 1TB SSDs for more fast storage space. I don't see much point in running two SSDs in software RAID0...

    So theoretically you could bust it open, use a 2.5" to 3.5" converter enclosure, and add an SSD to the 3.5" drive bay?

    Probably 100x easier to just add a USB3 or TB drive to it.

    I think that you may find that the SSD in the iMac like the new mini 2014 in't a 2.5" SSD but one of these blade SSDs like the M2 format that can buy.

    As such Apple aren't using Sata SSD's but PCI-E SSDs that are different format.

    The Blade SSD fits in a slimmer bay and a different connector then a 2.5" SSD
