Even Apple has OWC memory—I (Lloyd) know—because by accident I returned the iMac 5K last year with 32GB of OWC memory and never got it back! :;
Save $300 on memory: Apple wants $600 to go from 8GB to 32GB, but the OWC 32GB memory kit for iMac 5K is only $300. Installation is super easy.
OWC Announces Availability of Memory and Drive Upgrades for Latest Apple iMac with Retina 5K Display, Memory Savings of up to $300 vs. Factory
Tuesday, May 19th, 2015
Other World Computing announced today the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade Kits with up to 32GB for the new configuration of the Apple iMac 27″ with Retina 5K display.
The new iMac configuration comes with a 3.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive and a 5K Retina display, for a price of $1,999.00. OWC offers memory upgrade kits of 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB, which offer savings up to $300 over comparable factory options. Like all OWC memory upgrade kits, a ‘how-to’ install video and OWC lifetime limited warranty are included.
One of the Easiest Upgrades for Your iMac
Just like the original iMac model, a memory access panel on the rear of the newly announced iMac ejects via a simple push button located above the power input. Adding more memory is fast and simply involves installing new modules into the memory slots and reinstalling the access panel. Mac performance experts recommend selecting the least amount of factory installed RAM when ordering any iMac, taking advantage of significant cost savings by choosing OWC memory.
Savings up to $300 Compared to Factory Upgrade
New iMac owners seeking to max-out their RAM can select the 32GB OWC memory upgrade from OWC and save $300 compared to the 32GB factory cost of $600. For even more savings, iMac with Retina 5K display owners can trade-in the two factory base 4GB memory modules.
