Inserting an 2,5" SSD in the HDD Slot
I'm about to buy an iMac Retina. My questions refer to the change of a HDD.
I don't know whether all the options matter but here are the configuration details: 4.0GHz i7, 8GB, Radeon R9 M295X 4GB, 256GB SSD, no pre-installed HDD.
Then I want to add 32GB RAM and an additional 2,5" SSD to the SATA Port where the HDD usually is placed.
1. Do I need an 2,5 to 3,5 adapter to mount it?
2. Are the necessary brackets installed by Apple even when I do not configure the HDD/Fusion Drive option or do I need additional parts to fix the SSD? (As seen in Steps 33 & 34 of the HDD-Guide of the iMac 5k Retina).
3. Can the adhesive strips be re-used or do I need to buy new ones? Asking because I'm located in Germany and in the end with all the shipping costs, price of the additional parts, time and effort to swap all by myself it might not be worth the trouble.
Thanks a lot for your help. Depending on the answers I might have to reconsider my upgrade options.
Is this a good question?
