    Getting the new iMac 5k and trying to decide on storage.
    I've never had a Fusion Drive before or a Mac for that matter so this will be all new to me.

    Since this is an All-in-One and it will be right in front of my face, I am wondering if the FD is noisy and/or hot?

    THANKS!

    From someone new to the Mac where I used to deal with pc noises that sound like an aeroplane about to take off, I can tell you fusion drive/system fan on macs are such a bless. I almost hear nothing.

    Currently I have a newly purchased late 2013 one (and about to exchange for the retina). but for this current model. No complains what so ever. The machine is a gem. (I do mainly photography and video editing on it)

    My Retina iMac has a Fusion Drive...I've yet to hear it make a sound, and according to iStat both SSD and HDD are sitting at 91 and 93 degrees F, respectively.
