I bought an iMac with 3TB Fusion Drive and could not be happier with it's fantastic performance.

I bought it with 8 GB memory with the intention of taking it to 3rd party 16 GB or 32 GB. After using it now for nearly a month I'm in no hurry to to increase memory because this iMac just sings. For the profile of apps I run, activity monitor's memory dock icon always show green.

Aperture runs like it never ran before. I ran Preview on with my previous iMac while browsing photos too avoid the "Loading" message. With the Fusion Drive the "Loading" message is practically non existent with Preview off even while browsing.

Is the Fusion Drive worth the price? For me the answer is a resounding Yes!
