    Hi, I'll probably go with the 21,5 iMac, but the standard 5400rpm was a slow drive 10 years ago... so I guess fusion drive is a must but I already own a 256gb ssd samsung drive and I'm wondering if there is a empty thunderbolt cabinet to buy anywhere ? I can't seem to find any =/

    Edit: Also, what kind of speed can I expect through TB? same as if the ssd would be connected directly to the motherboard internally?

    You can pick up a refurbish LaCie little big disk off eBay and swap in your SSD it is what I did for my iMac

    Thanks, I have never seen one in person and they looked pretty sealed up in the pictures.
