    Default Apple Expands SSD Offerings for iMacs


    Those of you buying an iMac might have noticed something new recently under the customization options. According to the folks at MacRumors, Apple now has two new flash storage options available for the iMac, both of which can be purchased when buying a configure-to-order device from the online Apple Store.

    iMac buyers interested in replacing the standard 1 TB SATA hard disk drive had the 1 TB Fusion Drive option available since the introduction of the new thinner models last fall. The Cupertino California company seems to have provided the option to replace that slower mechanical drive with either a 256GB or 512 GB flash storage option, with price points being $300 extra and $600 extra respectively.

    Its always been possible to purchase an all-flash storage solution with the 27-inch iMac a 768 GB drive with a $900 price tag as well as 1 TB and 3TB hard drive and Fusion Drive configurations. The new offerings seem to be aimed at the people who might not needs tons of storage in their Macs but want the speed of flash storage instead.
