Anandtech on Apple's New Fusion Drive
Anand Lal Shimpi spent a month with Apple's new Fusion Drive. I appreciate this kind of technology review (or really any kind of review) for taking its time and not rushing to judgement. Read the whole thing, but the short answer seems to be that its good but not great.
I'd seriously consider getting something like the new Mac Mini with one of these, but I can't help thinking the Fusion Drive is a sort of stop-gap until high-capacity SSD prices come down. Like so many things, we're waiting for the good stuff to get cheaper.
