Newer Technology Announces NuMount Pivot for Mounting iMac, Apple Cinema Display, or Thunderbolt Display to Wall or Desk
Newer Technology, Inc. announced today the NuMount Pivot for securely mounting an iMac, Apple Cinema Display, or Thunderbolt display to a wall or desk. Stylishly designed in an aluminum finish to complement Apple products, the NuMount Pivot offers a full-range of extending, retracting and tilt motions to maximize display viewing comfort by reducing neck and eye strain. In addition to providing an enhanced view, the NuMount Pivot also maximizes productivity by elevating the display above the desktop for greater workspace utilization.
The NuMount Pivot will be shown in Other World Computing’s booth #5812, LVCC North Hall, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which begins tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada. Article Continues…
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. Article Continues…
The difficulties encountered when upgrading the 2012 iMac 21.5″ model are well documented. In fact, with the particularly complex screen and logic board removal, professional installation is highly recommended. Fortunately, Apple has made upgrading memory a much easier endeavor in the 27″ model of the new iMac.
The 27″ model features a simple memory access port on the rear that ejects via a button above the power input. To remove the rear panel, just unplug the power cable and push the button above the power input. (Note: The button must be pushed in about 1/2″, so we recommend using the Newer Technology Toolkit “spudger” or a similar household item.) Once you have the panel removed, you are free to insert new memory.
So, the outcome to this is that based on the ease of install, when ordering a new 2012 27″ iMac, you should get it with the least amount of RAM installed at the factory. Why? Well, OWC offers some substantial savings versus the factory upgrades! Our 16GB upgrade costs less than half ($97.50) of what the same upgrade from Apple costs ($200). And if you’re looking to max-out your RAM, we also offer a 32GB option, which is about 1/3 the price ($195) of Apple’s offering ($600). Article Continues…
