Fusion Drive with Same Capacity Drives?
MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 - 2.9 GHz i7
I'm finally turfing my MacBook's optical drive for an SSD. It feels like the stock 500GB , 5400 RPM, SATA/300 drive is really the thing holding my system back from another few years of solid use.
The thing is, SSD prices have come way down, and I'm getting a 500GB SSD. I'm wondering, is there an advantage to rolling a custom Fusion Drive with the HDD and SSD are the same capacity? Is there a performance advantage over Apple's software RAID 1 (given that fusion was designed to work with the two different technologies)?
I'm also open to other creative suggestions besides just having two different basic volumes.
Is this a good question?
