Apple’s trendsetting industrial designs are always beautiful, but often quite difficult to upgrade and repair. A case in point is the just released 21.5-inch iMac, which is elegant on the outside but riven with glue and easily torn rubber gaskets on the inside. However, getting performing a 27-inch iMac RAM upgrade is easy peasy.
In order to upgrade the RAM in Apple’s new 27-inch iMac, gently disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit, press the little button on the memory access door and, voila, you are in.
Of course, upgrading or repairing any of the other parts and components will be just as difficult as its little sister, the 21-inch iMac (iFixIt), but in Apple’s world we’re all beggars not choosers.
Would you trade a little, or maybe all, of the new iMac’s pregnant thinness for the upgradeability of, say, Apple’s iMac G5? Me, too.
Honestly, who cares how thin a desktop is?
