    Default iMac 2011 HD Replacement Question

    Hello iMore Community!

    I recently purchased an iMac at a rent to own store. Full price is 800 for a 2011 iMac 2.7ghz Intel i5 CPU. Not a bad price (I'm getting paid to go to school, and with that I also will get money to buy this computer within a month). Anyway, I plan on upgrading the RAM soon (2GB is not enough for me -- I do a lot of multitasking and I like to do some video editing). I would also like to add a SSD or a Apple Fusion drive. Which, brings me to my question. One, can we even buy a fusion drive from Apple? Would the price be worth it even if I could? Two, would adding a SSD to my computer do any harm to my computer? I would pay Best Buy to do it for me, assuming the price is still reasonable like it was when my old iMac HD died on me.

    Anyway, thanks!

    No you can't buy a fusion drive.
    Yes an SSD would help a lot.
