Joseph, I'm considering a purchase of a new iMac 27' to replace my long in the tooth late 2007 iMac. Currently I have 320G on the old machine I have two 500G external drives and use one for Time Machine backup and one for Super Duper to clone the iMac drive.
My thought is to go with the 256 flash drive for speed.Only installing programs and Aperture 3 library and continuing the same back up process. and keeping all my data photos, videos and etc., on a Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo 8TB,. Giving me a 4TB data storage and a 4TB raid0 or raid1. And all of that being backed up to my BackBlaze account. Or do you think I'm better of with more iMac hard drive space.
This was an incredible conversation, covering virtualizing trade shows, remote post production, and how to replace the social benefit of human gatherings.
