Answer to: The New iMac 27" 2017 model can upgrade ram and ssd?Retail: Amazon: Samsung 960 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6P512BW) $339.99 Samsung 960 PRO Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6P1T0BW) $619.00 Samsung 960 PRO Series - 2TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6P2T0BW) $1,297.99 Apple: 512GB "SSD" $200 1TB "SSD" $600 2TB "SSD" $1400 Buying the 512GB or the 1TB drive you come out ahead or even.

Not sure if there will be a cable from the motherboard to the empty spot where the 2.5" drive fits. A temp sensor and harness can be purchased from Otherworld Computing in any case. I am assuming Apple is using Samsung flash SSDs for their iMacs.

It's the same chip used in iBooks, PowerBooks, etc.. It's supposed to be causing issues. But that was power related; not video related. Any ideas on exactly what chip could be causing this? A bit of history. I bought this PowerBook Rev. B in late 2003 it was made in Taiwan during week 39. I did send it in under AppleCare warranty twice. Firstly, for a bad SuperDrive; they replaced a bunch of other components too. The second time it was the lower memory slot. I was already in Nepal and had to ship it to Singapore for AppleCare warranty coverage. I remember I had to pick a workshop from a list. I expected professional servi...
