UPDATE: Upgrade your 2010 27″ iMac with a high-performance eSATA port via OWC  today!

For all ‘Mid-2010′ Apple iMac 27″ Models introduced on July 28th, 2010: 3.2GHz and 3.6GHz Core i3; 2.8GHz Quad-Core i5; and 2.93GHz Quad-Core i7.

While we’re still ironing out the details of the service, (including incorporating your feedback on how much you’d be willing to pay for one), there has been enough interest on such a project for other Macs over the years that we decided to dive in and publicly announce we’ve got an eSATA interface solution for the 27″ Mid 2010 iMac. And for historical sake, this is the first ever eSATA interface available on any iMac model…exciting stuff to be sure!

Complete details on how you can have this high performance interface added to your iMac by OWC will be rolled out in the next several days. In the meantime, look for a possible news release later today on an entire turnkey upgrade program for the 27″ iMac. Now, you can add a performance leading SSD, high capacity hard drive, and memory upgrades with more configurations that will deliver the best possible performance from your iMac.

If your favorite news portal doesn’t carry our announcements on these developments, don’t worry; you can be sure that we’ll be announcing them here on the OWC Blog. If you’re more in the mood for an “Official Press Release” format though, you can always check the OWC News Room for our news releases.

      I’m curious as to what the actual max transfer speed of the esata port is that will be installed in MegaBytes Per sec.
      I’m considering using it with an external SSD. as well as having an internal SSD installed.

      Thank you

        The external port is simply a re-direct of one of the internal SATA Revision 2.0 ports, so maximum data transfer rate is 3.0 Gbit/s (or 300 MB/sec).
