512 flash vs 1tb flash, does1tb make a faster Mac?

  itsjordand1 19:35 26 Jul 2015

Im about to buy a 5k 27 inch IMac, Ill mainly use it for Music Production and downloading/streaming videos/music.

iv selected most specifications the best possible, which leaves Internal storage, i definitely want flash storage, so iv got 512 vs 1tb, i was gonna pick 1tb but then i thought it would be a relief to save £400! i can buy an extra 2tb hard drive storage for £75!, however if the internal 1tb makes the actual running and browsing of the Mac faster in general then i think it'd be worth it.

if you could help me thatd be great guys, thanks!

A very pretty toy. Is its RAM really up to multi track music production?

thanks Rumpelteazer thats good news.

wee eddie, yes it is, when i went to College which was just for Music all they used was Macs and that was in 2009/2010.

Possibly G4's or G5's.

To keep Wee Eddie happy you could add 32GB RAM to the 5K iMac... Although 16GB RAM might be a little more affordable.
