will even add extra ram just to max it out..

 

 

 

That's the old model - show's out of stock...

 

What about this, from the Apple store?

If you do go the route of a new iMac still max out the memory to 32Gb but do not buy the upgrade from Apple you will pay a fortune. Buy from third party suppliers at a fraction of the cost.

I don't think the memory on new iMacs is user upgradable. I think its soldered onto the logic board now.

The 27" are upgradiable the 21.5 are not.

21 inch is not soldered, but very difficult and warranty voiding to get to. 27 inch has a flap above the power port which opens to the 4 slots and is easy to change the RAM.... Comes with 2X 4GB as standard.

A Pro tip (literally): If you are buying Macs for business. Call Apple and tell them what you want to buy and ask for a discount. Usually lands me a 5% discount.

Got following specs:
i7 , 4.2 Ghz
32 gb ram 2400Mhz ddr4
3 tb fusion drive
Radeon pro 580 with 8gb video memory

Guess that would be fine for me to use... 😛

Hmmm - I think the latest machine at the highest spec should do you nicely.

 

Quite a turn around from the original question of how to speed up my 8 year old iMac.

 

 

 

Enjoy that - it should last you quite a while...

Our design team at work went very quiet about new Macs after the latest WWDC. Me thinks Finance will need to prepare it's self for the iMac Pro release.

New computer has still not arrived..

Now when i try to reinstall os , it does not let me..

 

Because my app store account does not have osx downloaded on it. 

 

i dont have any other apple device where i can login my account and download the osx to install.

 

what can be done ?
