Hey folks, I'm running a late 2010 i7 iMac (one of the last ones you can upgrade the HDD without jacking up the firmware. Love the screen, love the killer processor, but I'm considering swapping out a new harddrive (and more ram). 95% of my work is through LR4 with some Photoshop and Final Cut thrown in.
It seems like the best way to eek out a tad more performance would be going to SSD, but I'd like to keep my harddrive around 500 GB or more, so things are still a bit cost prohibitive there. Anyways, just wondering if anyone is running an aftermarket SSD or Hybrid drive (disk + small SSD in one) in an iMac and if it's made a noticeable difference in your workflow.
It's worth noting that for $500 plus selling my iMac and old Macbook Pro I could spring for a top-of-the-line MBP with retina display, and possibly have the best of everything. So that's also on the place.
Anyways, opinions/experience welcome.
Sidenote: I'm thoroughly entrenched in the Mac camp, so Windoze lovers need not apply...
