PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600MHz memory upgrades starting at $49.75 offer a wider range of memory configurations than Apple offers and up to more than $240 savings compared to equivalent factory options; OWC makes it easy and affordable to install it yourself.

Other World Computing (OWC®), the world's leading destination for cutting-edge and easy-to-install Mac and PC upgrades and accessories, announced the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade Kits from 8GB to 32GB for 2013 iMac® 27" models that became available today. OWC's kits offer memory configurations not offered by the factory as well as savings of more than $240 compared to same-size factory options. Like all OWC Memory Upgrade Kits, a 'how-to' install video and OWC Lifetime warranty are included.

What it does: upgrading the memory of this iMac gives you more options, better performance and it's a low-cost improvement that gives Apple's latest OSX—including the upcoming Mavericks release—the space it needs for maximum performance. For hundreds less than what Apple charges, users can select an OWC upgrade to unlock the machine's true potential. Installation takes just a few minutes, and OWCs iMac Memory Upgrade Guide makes it easy to select the right memory for any Apple iMac model.

Why it's cool: this is one of easiest Macs to upgrade and, just like the original 2012 model, a memory access panel on the rear of the 2013 model iMac 27" machine 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 an Apple 27" iMac.

What it costs: New iMac owners seeking to max-out the RAM can select the $359.00 32GB OWC memory upgrade and save over $240 compared to the 32GB factory cost of $600. For even more savings, iMac owners can trade-in the two factory base 4GB memory modules.

  • 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600MHz Upgrade Kit with Lifetime Warranty. $97.99
