When it comes to flash storage, options have been lacking on the iMac. Previously, the 21.5-inch iMac was not available to have a dedicated flash drive, it was only able to ship with a 1TB traditional hard drive or a $250 Fusion Drive. As for the 27-inch iMac, Apple did offer an all-flash storage solution, but only as a 768 GB drive which costs a whopping $900.
As MacRumors reports, however, Apple has silently added new storage options to its iMac lineup. These new storage options include either a 256 GB or 512 GB flash storage drive as part of the order customization process. Selecting a 256GB flash drive will cost you $300, and the 512G flash drive will run you $600. This of course will replace the 1TB traditional hard drive that comes standard across all iMac models.
Apple’s Fusion drive was supposed to act as a substitute for all-flash storage as it merges a 128 GB flash drive with a 1 TB traditional hard drive to provide quick access for most-used files and apps. For users who are looking for an all-flash storage solution though, Apple is now catering to your needs.
