Apple iMac 5K: 8GB and 16GB Configurations can *ADD* Memory While Keeping the Two Modules You Already Paid For
Yesterday, MPG discussed the drop in price on the OWC 64GB memory kit for the late 2015 iMac 5K, and how you can get 64GB for only about 5% more (system cost) than 32GB.
If you bought an iMac 5K with 8GB or 16GB or memory, here’s the cool thing: Apple now configures that 8GB as 2 X 4GB or 2 X 8GB, thus leaving two memory slots open. For a long time, it was 4 X 2GB or 4 X 4GB, occupying all four slots, so whatever came with the iMac had to be removed, a bummer.
