    In the October 23 presentation introducing the new iMac, Phil Schiller clearly says that you can have 'up to 768gb of flash' and on the slide showing the internal components it is labelled the same way.

    Why then in the Tech Specs for the 27 inch iMac does it say '768GB of flash storage'?

    Which is correct? Do you think we will see smaller size bto options for SSD available?

    Well this is just speculation at this point, but "up to" could mean in terms of expense of options, not just size. Like, "we have subscription options all the way up to Gold Accounts", like some services offer. A Fusion Drive has an incorporated 128GB SSD in it, after all, so a 3TB Fusion Drive is still going to be less expensive than a 768GB full-on SSD. So they might mean that. "Up to" in terms of how much you're willing to fork out.

    On the other hand, the new Mac Minis offer a 1TB HDD, 1TB Fusion Drive, and a 256GB SSD as config options, so maybe the iMacs will also have different sizes available. I doubt it, though.
