I have been reading the Mini forums on MacRumors for a few weeks. I still have not been able to get a definitive answer on this. Also, please remember that I will not open my new Mini up for anything besides upgrading the ram when I finally make my decision. Basically, I would like to make my Mini as future proof as I can and stay as far away from spinning media as possible. As of right now there are few options within my budget without incorporating at least a back up / media drive that spins. So I guess my question is, for anybody that has the build to order Mini with the SSD purchased and installed by Apple, is the SSD it worth it? Are there any noticeable differences between the Apple SSD and the Fusion drive besides the cost and lower amount of storage space? How much improvement is there in the performance of the SSD compared to the FD? Thank you in advance for putting up with another one of these threads.
