Hi guys,

I received my new iMac yesterday!

Just completed the migration and the first thing I did was a speed test. My heart dropped into my stomach when I ran the first test. The iMac has a 1TB SSD.

Here are the results. I did a 1GB; 4GB & 5GB comparison. I'm posting screen shots of the 1GB & 5GB comparisons.

Now to become familiar with 10.9.1
Rick, I can't wait to see what your MacPro is capable of!!!

BTW< a screenshot should be in .png. It should show up full size.

I am not able to upload. I created new, larger, .png files in Photoshop and when trying to upload got this: HostGator.com Error 500 Internal Server Error.
Can I email you jpeg + .png files and can you add them to my initial post? No hurry.

It appears I can. So yeah, I can add them.

That's a priceless photo, must have been a memorable day!

Thanks for adding the images to my post...perhaps the text was better, as it was easier to read :)

Good kid... better'n his old man deserves. A fun pic of fun times. Gotta love the old airplanes, that's for sure.

I prolly shouldn't a replaced the text with the screenshots. Oh well. Point is, 100 MB/sec versus 700. BIG difference. However, flash boot drive means more on boot times than work flow unless you figure a way to harness the speed for your data files.
