PC fans will tell you that the PC platform is much more open and upgradable than gadgets in the Mac world. That’s true, however Mac fans can upgrade at least some things on most Mac notebooks and computers like say the hard drive and RAM. Many people buy new Mac computers and then upgrade it with aftermarket parts to save money. Those aftermarket parts are usually cheaper than getting the upgrade from Apple.

Well, it turns out that the new iMac computers have more restrictions on their upgrades than the older version of the iMac. And they may force you to buy Official Apple parts.

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Does Apple hate connectivity standards? Always seems that way. So OWC is now offering an inexpensive option to fix yet anothet Apple design flaw. For just $169, plus shipping, the company will cut a small hole in the bottom grill and install the missing eSATA port.

The only problem is that the port isn’t port-multiplication-compatible so it won’t work properly with most multi-drive RAID enclosures. Still, if you want it, they will do it. Like Burger King, you can have your iMac your way.

iMac iPad Stand

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2010

Mac fans will want to get their hands on one of these stands for $50. What’s $50 after everything else you’ve spent on Apple gear? Besides, this solid aluminum and polycarbonate stand mimics the iMac.

It even has the hole for cords and supports both portrait and landscape configurations, along with three angles of tilt each. It looks solid, but I wonder if it actually is. It would need to weigh enough to really keep your iPad in place.

Rumor: Apple to launch 22-inch iMac

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 18th, 2010

I neither hate nor love Apple, but the company tends to have those that are at each extreme of the love hate relationship. I have an iPhone I really like, but I am not a fan of Mac computers. If you are a Mac fan and have wished for more screen sizes in the iMac line, your wish may be coming true.

A rumor floating around has Quanta building a new 22-inch iMac computer for Apple that is set to hit this year. There are no hard details on the rumor, but the screen size would fit in between the two existing models.

Two-week shipping delays for 27-inch iMacs

Posted in iMac by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2009

Two-week shipping delays for 27-inch iMacsApple has pushed back the shipping time for all 27-inch iMacs to two weeks. The company already delayed them by five to seven days earlier. This delay is believed to have something to do with a quality measure involving cracked screens on delivery and also systems that experience periodic flickering or lose their video signal completely.

This is not good news for Apple since it will delay many orders past Christmas. This means that it will disappoint buyers and could also affect Apple’s quarterly results, which were given a boost by new iMac revisions. So don’t expect your new 27-inch iMac under the tree this year.
