OWC Announces Memory Upgrade Kits For New 2013 21.5″ Apple iMac Core i3 Education Model

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade DIY Kit for 2013 21.5″ Apple iMac Core i3 Education models introduced last week. Offering up to 4x the RAM — 16GB — versus the factory base configuration of 4GB, the OWC Memory Upgrade DIY Kits come complete with an iMac opening tool, suction cups for safe screen removal, 11-piece toolkit, foam adhesive for proper glass and display resealing, and microfiber screen cloth. Both an 8GB and 16GB complete kit, as well as no tools, memory modules only kits, are supported by a ‘how-to’ video and OWC Lifetime warranty.

Savings Over $140 Compared To Factory Upgrade

When compared to the same-sized factory maximum memory option of 16GB, the $149.99 OWC Memory Upgrade DIY Kit offers 44 percent savings compared to the factory cost of $270. For even more savings, memory modules only (no tools) kits can be selected as well as the two factory base 2GB memory modules can be traded-in to OWC for a cash-back rebate.

OWC DIY Memory Upgrades for 2013 21.5” Apple iMac Core i3:

For schools buying several iMacs, the smart, fiscally responsible action is to buy one complete OWC Upgrade Kit with tools, and then just order memory modules only kits for upgrading additional iMacs,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “It should be noted, though, in order to upgrade the memory, 21.5″ iMac machines (unlike 27″ models)  require a highly complex screen and logic board removal. As such, we highly recommend professional installation of the kit.
