OWC’s Mid 2010 27″ iMac Turnkey Upgrade Program has been incredibly popular since we announced it back in August. After all, once you’ve upgraded your hard drive to an award-winning OWC Mercury Extreme SSD and have added an eSATA port for fast access to your external drives, you’ve got the most hot-rodded iMac out there, right?
You see, we just made our upgrade program even better. Before, in order to get a third internal drive, you had to sacrifice your internal optical drive. Now, you don’t have to.
Now, you can keep your optical drive while still running three OWC SSDs for high capacity and insanely fast file access and transfer. Just how big and fast is that? How does a whopping 1.44TB of SSD storage accessible at nearly 800 MB/s sound?
Yeah, we thought so.
So, how did we manage to get an extra SATA connection inside the iMac? Unfortunately, it involves disabling the built-in, but infrequently used SD memory card reader. Don’t worry, though; we still have you covered. If you choose the option to replace the SD reader with another ultra-fast OWC SSD, we will include our 68-in-One Media Card Reader at no extra cost.
Now, not only will you have another fast OWC SSD installed, you’ll be able to access the memory cards of all kinds of devices, not just the ones that use SD cards, via a USB 2.0 port at the same speed as the built-in reader.
In other words, now you can have your cake and eat it too!
