Lloyd says: to think that for most of my adult computing life I used turtle drives that ran at 1/10 to 1/50 this speed.

The 1TB flash drive in the late 2015 iMac 5K is worth every penny for its performance. Some real-world disk-intensive tasks are running to 2X to 3X as fast as on the 2013 Mac Pro (early 2014 build, 2015 builds might be faster).
