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.

bassbeast,

"Good luck on recovery as I've tried my hand at it too and with SSDs it seems like the controller goes bad more times than not so you are just boned."

Well, I actually desolder the NAND chips and work on data reconstruction from there so I'm not limited to recovery through a bad controller.


"But this is why I say there are places where SSDs make sense and places where it doesn't."

That's the bottom line. I'm hoping reliability problems are solved. Maybe one of these alternatives will replace NAND all together:
