    If you're in the US, I guess that's fine. I've bought some stuff from Adorama too - they're legit if this is what you want to know. But if you'll have it shipped here in the Philippines, shipping cost + duties could be very expensive.

    Bought this mac in Amazon. I was contemplating in buying Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book. Was on the fence because My mid 2011 Macbook Air is still functioning well apart from the possessed trackpad when night comes.

    I got a deal for Creative Kit 2016 that I snatched for GBP 75. The only mac in the house is the abovementioned air and a mid 2012 i7 mac mini as my media server. Then the iMac came to my mind. So converting to Windows will take another decade.

    Anyone knows where I can get RAM for the new iMacs locally? Specs:

    • PC3-14900
    • Unbuffered
    • Nonparity
    • 204-pin
    • 1867MHz DDR3 SDRAM

    Can't seem to find a reseller in TPC.

    Would you be open to ordering from amazon? I got a couple of ram sticks (kingston 1866) for my nuc and its perfect for the iMac too.

    I bought this specifically incase i dont push thru with the NUC i can use it for the iMac.

    The prices are crazy inflated haha!

    I found these, but the brand is unknown to me: http://www.amazon.com/Memory-27-inc...=1449564979&sr=1-13&keywords=sodimm+imac+1867

    @warmgreentea

    try to ask Louie if he can source that out for you... I'm surprised that he doesn't have it on his list (in TipidPC) - he even has a single stick 16GB DDR4 SODIMM (for going 64GB).

    Probably meant this TPC handle, louie_081475 :) He's sort of the go to guy for your RAM needs.

    2014 iMac 5k with fusion drive costs as much as the 2015 baseline iMac 5k. Hmmm..
