Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

the parts about ssd speed and lifetime sound right to me. even on fast new systems, hard drives still thrash left and right when doing lots of stuff.

and think of how many old semiconductors there are still working. the 10 year estimate makes sense because most ssds won't get worn out enough to kill the NAND. most of the stuff on an ssd just sits there. and when stuff is written, it is spread out across the nand to reduce aging.
