Apple has today added two new storage options to the recently redesigned iMac, giving more flexibility for users who are looking to use solid state storage. The company has now made the iMac available with a solid state drive of either 256GB or 512GB in size, adding to the current Fusion drive offerings (Via MacRumors). The upgrades, which replace the 1TB SATA Hard Drive, are available for $300 and $600 respectively. This is the first time that the 21 inch iMac has been offered with only SSD storage having previously only been available with a 1TB Fusion drive. The 27 inch iMac was previously available with a 768GB SSD but the storage choices now expand with the 256GB and 512GB SSD offerings.
The new options will no doubt come as a welcome addition to the iMac line-up, particularly since the new iMac design makes it quite difficult, albeit possible, to add an aftermarket third-party SSD to it.
