Best Drive Configuration?

iMac - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hello! I have an iMac with a 1TB fusion drive, which I purchased before realizing that the 1TB drives only have a 28GB SSD with them now. I am not interested in exchanging / returning / the iMac, and I'm not ready to crack it open at this stage, so I'm looking for the next best thing. Here are the two options I'm considering:

1. Use external SSD as boot drive. Use internal drive for media. Separate SSD regular drive, and use 28GB drive for.. ? Could leave them together too, I guess.

2. Use external SSD and build a Fusion drive with it and the internal SSD. Benefits of blade SSD for most used functions and pretty quick fallback when it's too big? Use regular drive for media.

I have a Samsung T3 on USB3. It gets great speeds, but the internal 28GB SSD obviously gets higher speeds still. Fusion drive setup is interesting. Thanks!
