The "Fusion Drives" In The New iMac And Mac Mini

24 October 2012

AllThingsD:

It’s better, Apple seems to be arguing, to have the drive you have, bolstered by some flash chips to give it some extra pep. Expect to see similar drives showing up notebook from other manufacturers soon.

Not really. It is very clear that Apple wants desktops to be 100% SSD, but that vision is still cost prohibitive. Fusion Drives are firmly an interim step only.
