Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Does Apple hate connectivity standards? Always seems that way. So OWC is now offering an inexpensive option to fix yet anothet Apple design flaw. For just $169, plus shipping, the company will cut a small hole in the bottom grill and install the missing eSATA port.

The only problem is that the port isn’t port-multiplication-compatible so it won’t work properly with most multi-drive RAID enclosures. Still, if you want it, they will do it. Like Burger King, you can have your iMac your way.

If you tend to buy your rigs with the minimum RAM available and upgrade alter you aren’t alone. OWC has announced that it has new RAM kits put together specifically for the newly updated iMac computers.
