Hi

Any ‘cheap' alternative’ advice would be grateful.

The SSD (125gb) part of my 1T Fusion Drive/ Mac (27-inch, Late 2012) /3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, is coming to the end of it’s life!

DriveDx  Lifetime indicator says 14%.

It’s starting to get quite slow now and I’m wondering what my best options are.

1) New Mac, I wish.

2) End up just with a 1T HD.

3) Separate the Fusion Drive and replace the HD with a new SSD say 500GB and  just use that. Forgetting about the original ssd blade.

4) Get the ssd blade replaced.

5) Just use a external ssd as start up drive.

6) ??

Kindest Regards

Chris
