As many of you, I read with interest this week that as Apple announced their new IPAD Mini, they also announced that they would be shipping new Fusion drives in their MACs. What is the Fusion drive? As described by Phil Schiller of Apple, it is a combination of flash and spinning HDD drive to speed performance. As you look under the covers of the announcement, more emerges, because what Apple has done is add quite a lot of flash to the drive,120GB in fact. This amounts to between 3 and 10% of the capacity of the HDD.
