Upgrading RAM on new 21.5″ Apple iMac is “an exercise in disappointment”

Thinking about getting a shiny new 21.5″ iMac for Christmas?

The popular site, iFixit claims that the machine is right up there with MacBook Pro in the level of difficulty in repairing it. Previously, they stated that the MacBook Pro was “the least repairable laptop we’ve taken apart”. In fact, they both received a score of 3 out of 10 for that.

If upgrades are unimportant to you, then this information may not apply, but if you are like me, you might prefer the ability to easily (within reason at least) repair a computer, and it is looking like that is going to be an issue for many over time as they develop problems and need support.

Head over to iFixit and read their-tear down and related notes… It’s an i(Mac) opener. (See what I did there? That was cute, wasn’t it?

I would suggest comparing the iMacs to other computers, such as the Lenovo IdeaCentre A720, which sports a massive 27 inch touch screen before purchasing. You might find a different set of features, and a different mindset on repairs.
