    I'd like to see benchmarks that compare:

    a) A 2012 BTO 27" iMac with 3 TB fusion drive
    and
    b) a mid-2010 souped up 27" iMac with 256 SSD and a 2TB secondary (internal) drive

    thoughts??

    I got the 1TB fusion, and the extra space wouldn't make a difference. However, I'm not willing to pay for more than $0.99 Geekbench to run the 64bit test. Since I would only ever need to run it once, I'll let someone else do that.

    The extra space I'm concerned about is the other 128 of SDD space. I understand that with the fusion drive, the SSD continually saves space for read/write/etc ... But I'm still nervous that a 3TB fusion drive might actually be SLOWER than what I have now (which is all apps on my 256 SSD and all data on my 2TB secondary internal)

    you have 256 gb of apps? wow.
    and all of those apps are heavy apps like photoshop, final cut, etc. ?

    well, that's a BIT of a slight exaggeration, but I do have my 256 drive pretty full (about 40 gb empty). But my concern still stands :)
