Unboxing, Teardown of 2017 21.5-inch iMac (Non-Retina Model)

On Thursday, we shared an unboxing and teardown of the new 2017 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display that was unveiled at WWDC.

After putting the 27-inch model through its paces and confirming support for 64GB of RAM in all 27-inch iMac 2017 models, we’ve had a chance to take a deep dive into the non-Retina base model 21.5-inch 2017 iMac.

Noteworthy observations from the teardown: 

  • A non-Retina 2017 21.5-inch iMac ordered without a Fusion Drive does not have a PCIe socket for future PCIe SSD installation.
  • The 21.5-inch iMac features two memory slots.
  • We have confirmed compatibility of up to 32GB of memory.
