Apple’s Memory Prices Insanely High As Usual: Save a Bundle by Ordering 8GB Config in Mid-2017 iMac 5K
Get iMac 5K at B&H Photo.
Pricing by Apple for iMac 5K memory of +$1400 bodes ill for what 64GB or 128GB will cost for the iMac Pro (due out in December 2017). It’s not clear if the iMac Pro memory can be upgraded—reader David B points out that the cutaway on the Apple site shows 4 internal memory DIMMS. At the least that imples a problematic upgrade process (heat gun to take off the rear case). It’s also possible that Apple will solder on the memory in shipping systems.
Unlike the pro model, the mid-2017 iMac 5K has four memory slots, so that you can save about $820 on 64GB memory for the iMac 5K.
