Apple Mac - configuration?

Zstar Avatar
2y, 4m agoPosted 2 years, 4 months ago
Thinking of buying an Apple Mac - but of course they are expensive. However I do want the besets model, and here's my question. Would I be able to buy the 27" model with it's basic features and add on the "configurable" elements later on? Such as the processor, memory + storage?

I will be using it to run Logic Pro X and start making music. I don't know if it would be helpful to really have all the highest specs for that purpose.

Please help. Thanks.

have a look for that video again.
that might have been some expert with more soldering and unscrewing experience than a chinese assembly line.
generally, it's not user-replaceable
crucial, who supply memory modules for all sorts of computers, don't sell it for this machine

if i was buying gear for music, i would be thinking of a MBP and thunderbolt display (or HD TV). might cost more but is more versatile.

The base 27" version will do what you want it to do, no you can not add to it at a later date.
#2
No, you cannot add the upgraded parts later! Get what you want first time round!

Thanks guys. Although I did once see a YouTube video of someone unpacking theirs and I think they added some memory to it, but I'm not sure... Anyone clarify this.

Bt that will void your warranty (something which you don't want to do) for macs.
Any configuration you want to add you should do it in the beginning.

Or could build a well specced hackintosh if you have some skills at building and installing

The iMac label has been used on a lot of Apple PCs, so it may be a previous model you saw. A lot of them did have upgradeable memory.
