Update 7/31/2010: No Longer a ‘Maybe..’ eSATA Option for Apple ‘21010’ iMac 27″ is now available!
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.
Ever since our Tuesday night post regarding the third SATA port on the Mid 2010 27″ iMacs, there has been a resounding chorus of “we want eSATA on an iMac!” coming at us from all directions.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of the project, a kit for such a thing is not very likely to surface.
What if, though, we offered a turnkey service for adding this interface to your new iMac? Much like our Mac mini upgrade service or iPod battery replacement service, you’d send us your iMac, we’d perform the intricate upgrade, then send your iMac back with a custom high speed eSATA port. Would that sort of thing appeal to you? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for such a service?
