OWC Makes Upgrading iMac An Easy Four Step Process:

The eSATA (External Serial ATA) port upgrade provides faster data backup and transfer rates up to 300MB/s…up to 3X faster than FireWire 800, the fastest factory stock interface.
  2. Select from options for additional OWC Mercury Pro SSDs (allowing for up to three total) for the highest performance storage available. OWC SSDs offer read/write speeds in excess of 270MB/s, up to 40% faster than the factory and many other currently available SSDs.
  3. Replace the stock HD with a High-Performance 2TB HD while utilizing up to two OWC SSDs.
  4. Add OWC RAM up to 16GB with kits providing 8GB total RAM starting from $85. OWC memory kits for the iMac are Lifetime Warrantied and offer savings up to 70% compared to same size factory available upgrade options.

"What's especially new and exciting is that maximizing the iMac with any of these drive/eSATA upgrade combinations no longer requires the removal/replacement of the existing Apple SuperDrive (Optical Drive DVD/CD Reader-Writer)," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "Now the self-contained iMac can truly have it all and provide unrivaled capability without comparison in the 'all in one' desktop computer space."
