• iMac Intel 27" EMC 2309 and 2374 Teardown

    Quote from moldor:

    Brilliant teardown. Couple of points;

    1. Is there a "spare" SATA connector, and what would it take to add an external port ? From your earlier posting I think there's room on the back panel. [...]

    I too am wondering if an eSATA port can somehow be added. To me, that's the biggest thing that's missing from the latest Macs. I've heard about the forthcoming Apple/Intel Light Peak optical interface but nothing is going to beat native SATA for an external storage interface (no bridge/translation necessary).
