Other World Computing announced today the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade Kits from 8GB to 32GB for 2012 27″ iMac models that began shipping recently. OWC’s kits offer memory configurations not offered by the factory as well as savings up to over $400 compared to same size factory options. Like all OWC Memory Upgrade Kits, a ‘how-to’ install video and OWC Lifetime warranty are included.
One of Easiest to Upgrade Macs Ever Produced
Unlike the 2012 iMac’s complex install process which requires removing the screen with a custom upgrade kit developed and offered only by OWC, the 2012 27″ iMac has been hailed as one of the easiest to upgrade Macs ever produced. A memory access panel on the rear of the 27″ machine ejects via a simple push button located above the power input. Adding more memory is a simple, several minute process of 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 a 2012 27″ iMac.
Savings Up to Over $400 Compared to Factory Upgrade
New iMac owners seeking to max-out the RAM can select the $197.00 32GB OWC memory upgrade and save over $400 compared to the 32GB factory cost of $600. For even more savings, iMac owners can trade-in the two factory base 4GB memory modules.

“It just makes financial and performance sense to select the base level of factory installed RAM when ordering a new 27″ iMac,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “For hundreds less than the factory, you can select one of our upgrades to deliver the machine’s true potential and install it yourself with a memory access design so easy, the process can be done by nearly anyone.”
