OWC has posted a teardown video of the new 2017 iMac Pro. The site was able to confirm that you can upgrade the desktop with third party RAM; however, it recommends that buyers purchase iMac Pro with the required amount of memory due to the labor involved with an upgrade.

“OWC is excited to announce that it has confirmed OWC memory compatibility and that both DIY Kit and Turnkey Upgrade programs for iMac Pro will be forthcoming. Being able to upgrade the iMac Pro with more memory should an existing memory config prove to be inadequate is a great benefit for the longevity of these impressive, powerful new systems,” said OWC CEO Larry O’Connor.

“That being said, with consideration to the relatively limited trade-in value of the lowest base 32GB option, the current cost of a full 64GB or 128GB kit and the labor involved with the upgrade – we currently recommend purchasing an iMac Pro with the amount of memory you believe will be needed. While it is huge benefit to have the option in the future, at present the financial benefit is relatively small vs. the factory cost differences to upgrade from that base 32GB. Over time this difference will likely grow and a real benefit will come to be, but for now we do feel the knowledge that an upgrade is possible is of more benefit than choosing to upgrade aftermarket at this time.”

Lel. “How extensive the labor is for swapping RAM.” Any dumbass knows how to swap RAM. It’s just Apple intentionally putting shitful amounts of unnecessary obstacles and non-standard screws to make life much more difficult.

When are you guys going to update your app for iPhone X. I mean come on you guys are a freaking Apple news company and you STILL haven’t updated the app???? You’ve known about this phone far longer than most normal people that don’t know anything about technology or Apple. Just doesn’t make sense guys. I hate this interface using iPhone X. Please fix this NOW. Stop what you’re doing and get on it NOW
