    Didn't they say it would work faster because they fused them together?

    That's their advert term for the two single volumes being shown as one volume.

    I admit that I have not read anything about it (only saw them talk about it), but does this mean that if the hard drive fails, you change it out and it will still work like a "fusion" drive?

    Yes, but you will have lost all the data on the HDD if it fails.

    This sounds like a better solution than what I thought it was. This way, you would not have to replace a drive that contained the SSD if only the HDD died.

    It's basically them promoting the "software" base of something that has been around for consumers for a long time now. It is definitely good for those consumers that are looking for that kind of performance, that will automatically adjust to the most used apps, etc. It isn't new though, just new for apply to promote the "feature".

    Right, I remember that now! Fusion isn't a hybrid HDD but the software managing the SSD and HDD.

    I thought there was some similar functionality in the older iMacs as well? I guess I was mistaken. Didn't know you had to chose manually what to have in the SSD and what in the HDD.

    So in reality the hardware configuration is more or less the same as last year's. A HDD and an SSD. The only new here is the Fusion software.

    They definitely made is sound more glamorous than it actually is... I thought it was some type of hybrid design from their "fusion" description. Of course, that may be my fault since I was surfing the web while watching it.

    Nope, not your fault at all. That's exactly how they portrayed it.

    Got some hands on time with a iPad Mini today. Stunning device, and the build quality is outstanding. It is simply a joy to have in your hands.

    Its a shame that the iPod Touch 5G has only an A5 and 512 mbs RAM.

    I don't like the width of the mini. Thought its have some updated specs instead of now two generations behind.

    Yeah the specifications are kinda disappointing but i think that better hardware wont fit in a such small device like the ipad mini.

    If it fits in the iPhone 5, surely those engineers could fit them in the iPad mini.

    I quite like the mini. My friend bought one and it feels so much more comfortable to use than my iPad 3. It doesn't hurt the wrist when holding it. The thing is just so thin and so light it's unreal.

    The size makes sense... The specs don't. Kinda win/lose.

    The majority of users don't look at specs.

    Oh I don't know, how about because people won't pay $499+ for it. At least it has the same screen as the 5. That is a first.

    The ipod touch is already overpriced as it is so why not add better hardware.

    Depends what you want to use it for...

    There are reasons why so many professionals use iMac's and MBP's. I'd love to see a Windows machine run Logic... Oh wait... They can't.
