    I had a Windows 10 VM on a Mac Book Pro with an SSD and was very pleased with how speedy it was compared to my previous Mac. I have now replaced that Mac Book Pro with an new iMac with a Fusion Drive and it seems to be running very slowly as it did before. Is there really such a speed difference when using a Fusion Drive? I'm going to do some RAM re-allocation and change the HD size, but I don't know if this will help at all. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I now have read the suggestions that I swap out my Fusion drive for an SSD drive. I wonder, though, if I put my Virtual Machines on an external SSD would my speed problems be solved without having to swap out the internal Fusion drive?
