Teardown Reveals New Entry-Level iMac Has Soldered Memory That Can't Be Upgraded
A teardown of the new entry-level iMac by OWC reveals that the desktop has soldered memory which can't be upgraded.
Now that we’ve had time to teardown the new iMac, unlike the $1,299 iMac, we found this iMac has the memory soldered to the motherboard removing any possibility of adding additional memory. Users will be permanently locked in to the 8GB of memory, as there is no Apple factory upgrade option.
The new iMac costs $1099, $200 less than the previous entry-level iMac. It features a 1.4GHz Dual-Core i5 processor, a HD 5000 Graphics card and a 500GB hard drive.
