Can I use this as a primary drive for my iMac?
I love my new 2012 iMac but definitely the biggest minus is the slow 5400 RPM HDD. If its true that thunderbolt is as fast as internal bus could I not then use this as my primary drive and then use the internal drive for media storage. So I would do raid stripping 128 GB and put OS X on it. Would that work?
I don't care at all about portability or capacity- my only concerns are speed and aesthetics. I would have chose a 128GB SSD over the 1TB HDD if I could. (I'm in the cloud all the time in fact I'm posting this from the cloud right now. We have unicorns.)
Apple only offered a 768 GB SSD but only on the 27" and costing $1 more than the cost of my stock iMac. So this might be a good aftermarket solution.
