Adding an OWC SSD to your 27″ iMac (2011) costs even less!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012 | Author:

To celebrate Tuesday’s release of the OWC DIY Kit for 2011 27” iMac models, we’re knocking and additional $15 off the price if you buy a qualifying OWC Mercury SSD at the same time.

Though the procedure is not for the faint of heart, adding a fast OWC SSD alongside the internal platter-based hard drive that’s already installed allows you to keep your data while gaining the speed benefits of an SSD when your OS is properly installed on it.

If you’re looking for further drive expansion options, though, or if you’d rather have a trained professional do it for you, you may want to check out our Turnkey Upgrade Installation Program, which has a number of extra options.
