WOODSTOCK, Ill., Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today a new OWC Memory Upgrade Kit with up to 32GB of memory for the Late 2015 Apple iMac 27" with Retina 5K display announced today by Apple.  OWC 1867Mhz DDR3 memory, compatible with the new iMacs, will begin shipping on Friday, October 16 at www.macsales.com.  While the new iMacs are available in configurations up to 32GB of memory, OWC is testing for support of up to 64GB of memory.

Savings up to $336 Compared to Apple Factory Upgrade
New iMac owners seeking to max-out their RAM can select the 32GB OWC memory upgrade from OWC and save $336 compared to the 32GB factory cost of $600. For even more savings, iMac with Retina 5K display owners can trade-in the two factory base 4GB memory modules.

One of the Easiest Upgrades for Your iMac
Just like the original iMac model, a memory access panel on the rear of the newly announced iMac ejects via a simple push button located above the power input. Adding more memory is fast and simply involves installing new modules into the memory slots and reinstalling the access panel.  Mac performance experts recommend selecting the least amount of factory installed RAM when ordering any iMac, taking advantage of significant cost savings by choosing OWC memory.  OWC provides free installation videos on its website at http://eshop.macsales.com/installvideos/.
