Crunch time -- should I buy iMac with the new Fusion Drive OR the combined SSD + HDD?

1) I assume that Migration Assistant knows what files to put where using EITHER choice ???

2) I am inclined toward the SSD/HDD combo because of Boot Camp/Windows

3) Fusion Drive -- otherwise I would have to clone TWO DRIVES with SuperDuper.

I absolutely do NOT know IF I am being paranoid about the Fusion Drive. However, I would welcome all definitive feedback.

You can use BootCamp with the Fusion Drive (it allows a single BootCamp volume). I'd advise that over the HDD/SSD combo - it's going to be significantly faster, and is definitely the way Apple is heading.
