I can't say, I am an Apple fanatic, but I do like some of their products. One thing I can't wrap my head around is why in this day and age iMac's do not have SSD/Flash storage as the base storage? Apple switched MBA to SSD/Flash in 2010, MBP in 2012, 2nd gen MP is all flash as well. This really leave mac mini and iMac. With 500 GB SSD starting in high $100 and 1 TB SSD drives costing in high $300 I believe it just shouldn't make any sense for them to even plan and engineer a computer with spinning drives anymore. Take the spindles out of the base models and replace them with 256GB flash (1.4 Ghz model) and 512GB (rest of the lineup) and all of sudden a decently priced product becomes an excellent and great value product with improved performance and longevity. This poses a question; how many years will it take till flash becomes a standard storage in iMac? I am really hoping that they are ready to make the change this year, but that might be just wishful thinking.
