    Hi!

    I have a 2017 iMac 27 inch. I have been told (by the seller) that my drive is a 1TB fusion drive. I've tried to find out from clicking on things but I feel like I'm getting conflicting information.

    Here's what Disc Utility says:

    Here's what 'storage' says:

    That seems weird because under 'device name' is says HHD, but under 'Medium Type' it says SSD, which seem to be implying that it's a 1TB SSD drive.

    Then under 'SATA' it says this:

    I heard under 'device tree' it's meant to show two different drives there for a fusion drive. But here it only has HDD there. And seems to imply that it's a 1TB HDD! Have I misunderstood something? It did mention SSD in the one above, so I'm quite confused. Does anyone know what drive I have?

    Thanks!

    Fusion Drive is basically hybrid of HDD & SSD...

    You also need to click on the NVMExpress label to see the SSD portion of the 1TB Fusion Drive in your iMac.

    Ah thanks a lot! Apple could not have made it more counter-intuitive if they'd tried!
