Customized order for iMac in the official Apple store now includes more storage options including 256GB, 512GB, and 768GB Flash storage both for the 21.5-inch and 27-inch versions.
Flash storage option in the iMac cost a lot, too. If you want the 256GB option, you just have to add $300, 512GB doubles the price with an extra $600. The new storage options of iMacs were not announced by the company, it came by surprise in the Apple store and was first noticed by MacRumors on Thursday.
Before the new storage options, orders for the 21.5-inche model iMac doesn’t have the flash options upon custom order. Choices were only the default 1TB 5400rpm SATA drive and the 1TB fusion drive that costs an extra $250. For the 27-inch model, it has the default Serial ATA drive option and flash storage option but only restricted to 768GB which cost an extra $900.
All the default-configured iMacs in both models were offered to be ship within a day from the official Apple store website.
The Cupertino, California-based company was reportedly having issues with production. It was determined to have stemmed from their screen lamination process which helped Apple achieve the thinner screen design in their computers. And now that it seem to be resolved, Apple is now able to offer more internal storage options.
