What’s So Great About Fusion Drive? (Part 2)
If you run into a software problem on your Mac while running a homemade Fusion Drive, support might be refused at a Genius Bar or a service provider until your Mac is restored to a regular configuration.
What’s So Great About Fusion Drive? (Part 1)
When Apple updated the iMac and Mac mini in late 2012, it introduced a new storage option called Fusion Drive. Despite the name, it’s actually two drives working in a special arrangement. It pairs 128GB of flash storage with either a 1TB or 3TB hard drive. Apple bills it as providing the high capacity of a hard drive with the performance of flash storage, in a way that has no impact on how you work and store things.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Graphics Card
Developing new GPUs is expensive, so it’s no surprise to see firms making the most of what they’ve got. Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost does just that, building on last year’s non-“Boost” Ti card and improving it across the board.
Sapphire HD 7790 2GB GDDR5 OC Edition
MD has been making a big noise about its monster HD 7990 card recently, despite the number of people who can afford one being tiny. A far more realistic option for most of us, though, is the HD 7790, which has now been improved.
Seagate ST500LM00 Laptop Thin SSHD 500GB
As the 'Thin' title suggests, the other major advance is that this unit is just 7mm thick, enabling it to fit into most ultra-thin laptops designs providing they allow you to change the hard drive. The larger 1TB laptop version has two platters, making it a slightly chunkier 9.5mm, and Seagate promises 1TB and 2TB desktop drives soon.
AMD Radeon HD 7990 - A Worthy Competitor In The High-End Of The Graphics Card Category
It’s more than a year since the first HD 7000 Series cards appeared, but AMD has at last launched a flagship model -and what a card it is. The Radeon HD 7990 is a dual-core monster, but it comes in at the highest price we’ve ever seen for a graphics card.
Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB - A Good Option
The launch of the GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB is something of a response to the debut of AMD's Radeon HD 7790 1GB, as it targets gamers playing at 1080p and sits in the mid-range of graphics hardware, with prices floating around $211.4 for stock models. However, it actually picks its fight with the model above this in AMD's range, the HD 7850 2GB, which can also be found for about $211.4.
Component Watch: Five Of The Best Gaming Mouse
A bad workman always blames his tools, apparently. While that may well have more than a whiff of truth, you can bet that Michelangelo’s David would’ve looked a bit less polished if all he’d had to work with was a sledgehammer. Sometimes, to bring out your true skills, you need the tools capable of channeling them – and that, at least for us, is enough justification to warrant buying a high precision, fully customizable gaming mouse.
