GREAT VIDEO. Unfortunately on the first attempt I cracked my dads screen slightly. Our faces were a picture and our hearts sank !! Anyway, I on the second attempt I used a very thin razor/scraping blade to cut through the self adhesive strips and the screen came off very easily. I followed the video step by step and only had to pause it a few times to catch up. Took me about 30 minutes in total from start to finish. New 16GB RAM installed and its like having a new computer. The old man is thrilled and I am still in his will, so a good day all around !! This video is great and has saved us a heap of money. THANK YOU
Thank you for this very professional video. Me and my son did it without to many struggles. Took 1,5 hour. The memory is PC3 Kingstom ram 2 x 8 gb 1600MHz SODIMM (KCP316SD8/8) and a Samsung 1 TB SSD 850 EVO. We bought the tools shown in the video from iFixit in Germany directly from their website. They didnt have 21,5 strips on stock so we bought 27″ strips and used a scissor. The guy in this thread with the 3 bipping notes probably has a problem with the ram he choosed to insert. The key to success is to be very patient, don’t rush it and choose a time where you will not be interrupted by spouse or work 😉
hello, iMac (21.5 inches, end of 2013), and I want to change the memory (8 GB as 32 GB) ram and the processor (Core i5 as corei7). My doubts are: 1. What “ram” reference does my mac receive? (recommend brands by amazon) 2. Can the processor be changed? I appreciate your help. Good video.
Thank you for your questions! We are very sorry but the Late 2013 21.5″ iMac will only be able to be upgraded to 16GBs of RAM. Here is the compatible RAM: https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/iMac/2012_21.5/DDR3L We would also recommend contacting the manufacturer to see if a processor upgrade is available.
