If I buy a mac mini with a fusion drive and add windows using boot camp, can I make the SSD function be dedicated to the windows partition?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

Additional information from Linc's post. Basically, only one additional partition can be added to a Fusion Drive and it resides on the HDD.  Do computers that come with a Fusion Drive support Boot Camp? Yes. Use the Boot Camp Assistant to create a Windows partition and install Boot Camp. The Windows partition will exist on the hard disk drive, not the Flash drive, and is not part of Fusion Drive Logical Volume Group. 3TB Fusion Drive configurations need to update to OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.3 or later to install Windows 8. See iMac (27-inch, Late 2012): Boot Camp alert with 3T hard drive for more information.

No. The Windows partition will be on the hard drive.
