I haven't used fusion since I sold my Mac Mini a few years ago, but it was pretty darn good and awesome in terms of bang for buck. In terms of booting, launching apps, page-outs, and accessing frequently-used files, you get all the benefits of SSD. It's only when accessing big files and infrequently-used files that you got the HDD slowdown, which for most folks is rare or never happens.

That display itself is still worth at least $1,500. The entire computer you're getting for $249.

So yeah, still with Fusion Drives.

The Flash storage in the 1 and 2 TB Fusion Drives are only 24 GB, after formatting and macOS install it leaves under 10 GB.
