Other World Computing (OWC®) http://www.macsales.com, a leading zero emissions Mac upgrade and storage technology company, announced today the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade Kits from 8GB to 32GB for 2014 iMac 27" with Retina 5K display models. OWC's kits offer savings up to $200 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 2012 model, a memory access panel on the rear of the 2014 iMac 27" with Retina 5K display 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. Therefore, 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 Over $200 Compared to Factory Upgrade
New iMac with Retina 5K display owners seeking to max-out the RAM can select the 32GB OWC memory upgrade and save over $200 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.

  • 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600MHz Upgrade Kit with Lifetime Limited Warranty. $99.79
