- RAM Upgrade
- Although only 4GB is 'officially' supported by Apple, the information is out of date and this iMac can actually be upgraded to a total of 6GB of RAM (4GB + 2GB). Choose your ram modules on the left. The only tools you need are a Phillips #1 Screwdriver and a Spudger. Then follow this guide to install the RAM.
- This iMac has a 250GB/320GB 3.5-inch factory HDD connected to a 3Gb/s SATA port. To upgrade the existing HDD, you’ll need a larger 3.5-inch HDD along with the general servicing kit. No additional thermal sensor cable is needed in iMac’s up to the late 2009 models.
- To clone your existing OS/app setup first, purchase an external 3.5-inch HDD enclosure or dock and put your new HDD in it, then use the Super Duper app to perform the clone, then switch the drives. The enclosure can also house your old HDD.
- Even though this machine has a second generation SATA port, significant I/O and data transfer rate gains can be had by upgrading the factory 3.5-inch HDD to an SSD. For this, you’ll need to purchase any 2.5-inch SSD along with the same general servicing kit. Plus, you’ll need to add in the OWC Adaptadrive 3.5-inch to 2.5-inch drive converter.
- To clone your existing OS/app setup first, purchase a cloning cable or 2.5-inch HDD/SDD enclosure to connect your new SSD to your mac, then use the Super Duper app to perform the clone, then switch the drives. Your old 3.5-inch HDD can be housed in this enclosure.
- HDD + HDD/SSD
- It’s also possible to add in a HDD/SSD by removing and replacing the existing Optical Drive. For this, you’ll need to purchase any 2.5-inch SSD along with the same general servicing kit. Plus, you’ll need to add in the Optical Bay SATA HDD/SSD Enclosure.
