MacVoices #16077: Ted Landau On Buying A New iMac and The FBI vs. Apple Controversy

MacNotable Ted Landau  recently purchased an iMac 5K, and shares his decision-making process on options like fusion vs. SSD drive, amount of RAM, and upgrading the processor. He also discusses the external storage solutions he tried, and his surprising final choice. Ted also gives us his thinking on the FBI v. Apple issue, and why you need to make up your own mind before taking a side.
