Was about to return my 2019 27″ iMac. upgraded ram and storage : mac
I used to be preparing to return my base mannequin 27″ iMac because is was pretty damn slow. I sold my desktop and wanted to switch to iMac for a simpler setup and for that screen. Instead of returning it, I spent $150 on 16gb more ram and a usb-c external SSD. I loaded the operating system to the SSD and taped it to the back of my iMac. Much better and tolerable performance now. I have had many Apple laptops before and I use my 2018 15″ MBP for hours every day. I like that Macbook. I’m simply baffled that Apple would promote one thing that was critically bottlenecked by the HDD and little ram. One day I’ll get inside my iMac and improve all of the storage.
