Tips for Choosing Storage

A Solid State Drive (SSD) is the fastest storage available on a Mac. Apple has made an SSD the only option on their laptops and some of their desktops. We suggest most users use an SSD.

On the iMac, Apple also offers an Hard Disk Drive (HDD). We do not suggest getting an HDD due to slow speeds.

On the iMac, Apple also offers a Fusion Drive, which is a combination of both HDD and SSD. The Fusion Drive Automatically puts the stuff you use most on the SSD, while putting things that are rarely used on the HDD. If you opt for a Fusion Drive, we recommend the 2TB or 3TB tier, due to the higher SSD size.

1TB Fusion Drive: 1TB HDD & 32GB SSD
2TB Fusion Drive: 2TB HDD & 128GB SSD
3TB Fusion Drive: 3TB HDD & 128GB SSD

If you plan on configuring your iMac with more than 16GB of memory, we suggest getting a 2TB Fusion Drive or all SSD for best performance.

Tips for Choosing Memory

With more memory, users can run more apps at a faster rate of performance at once. For the general consumer, 8GB of memory should be enough for web browsing, email, and light photo editing. For those who plan on doing any work with video or want to “future proof” their Mac, we suggest a minimum of 16GB of memory.
