In the absence of iFixit, OWC shows the insides of the new 27-inch iMac

For some obscure reason, so far the traditional iFixit has not published any of those sensational opening galleries (teardown) from Apple products or the new iMacs, not even the Magic Trackpad. Fortunately, Other World Computing has at least shown, in one photo, the insides of the new 27-inch iMac.

27-inch iMac opened by OWC

The area highlighted in red where the solid state drive (SSD) goes is not previously installed on the photographed machine, which came only with a factory hard disk (HD). As we clarified yesterday, the new 27 ″ iMac has two bays for data storage drives.

The good news is that anyone who buys an iMac with both drives can replace Apple's SSD with a high-performance model from OWC, called Mercury Extreme SSD. But, buying the iMac with only one HD, Apple does not include the physical structure necessary for the practical installation of any other drive, however, I imagine, it will only be a matter of time before a company offers a solution for this.
