I’m really hoping we are getting no bezel iMacs in around 6 weeks!

I’ve been waiting for a good reason to upgrade my 2014 iMac.

This discount is a sign that new iMacs are incoming!

Or ... do buy one, then replace spinning drive with a 2 to 4tb sata ssd for waaay less than apple would offer it. To me, thats exactly why I WOULD buy one of these, to get tons of internal SSD storage in a mac for very little expense

Still cant figure out what the big deal is with having bezels on a desktop. Why care? Its a totally cosmetic superficial aspect of the machine, and some would contend that bezels actually act as a nice separation between whats on the screen and the office space, room, activity, etc that may be behind the computer

I’m still using a fully loaded 2009 iMac, what’s the rush? I use an Ethernet for networking, FireWire 800 for external storage, upgraded internal drive to SSD myself. It does not handle 4K video and the USB 2.0 is SLOW, can’t put the display to full brightness, otherwise works great lol

Disinclined to believe new iMacs are coming when they just refreshed the line 5 months ago. Not very Apple-like. Also, an Amazon sale isn't proof of anything other than an Amazon sale.


That was just a spec update. Also they upgraded the new MacBook Air within 12 months.

That would be exciting, but where's the rumors and leaks for an upcoming redesigned iMac? I just don't see enough evidence that such a thing is imminent. There's been lots of sales on Apple products that come and go with no new products arriving.

Yeah, iFixit is great. I've done some minor surgery on MacBooks to replace batteries or get cat hair out of them. I also put an SSD to my old Mac Mini. Honestly it is all sort of fun if you have the right tools and instructions at hand, and take it nice and slow.

But the whole "it's glued together" part of the 5K iMac sounds like a nightmare, and even assuming I didn't botch that somehow, the thing also has a pretty crusty old graphics card which is starting to show its slowness. I think I'm gonna go the coward's way out and sell it and pick up a refurbed one.


Just saying from someone with experience (me) opening both the previous model iMacs and these ones with the 'taped-on' screen ... these with the taped-on screen are actually easier IMO to open up and upgrade. Once you get past the anxiety of the unknown, cutting the tape (using the correct iFixit tool) and then reapplying the tape is no problem at all.

Additionally, unlike the 2011 and prior iMacs, these only have two different wires attaching the screen to the motherboard. The older models have 4 or more.

Bottom line, I feel like these are in fact the easiest iMacs in which to upgrade the HDD that Apple has ever produced.

P.S. That's why I will absolutely buy one of these 2019 models once I pass my 2017 iMac onto my daughter. Whatever model iMac Apple releases next will almost assuredly have a soldered-on SSD and will be prohibitively hard (impossible) to upgrade/replace.

You can install a sata SSD internally in the imacs. I’ve done it with several. Not that hard at all really. IFixit is your friend.
