The Retina iMac 5k maxed out with 32GB of RAM is incredible

Apple's new Retina iMac 5K is a stunning computer for graphic design and video editors looking for the best possible screen to get their work done. Still, considering it's $2499 price tag, you'd think Apple could throw in more than 8 GB RAM. Maxing it out to 32 GB in Apple store will cost you an extra $600, but if you do it yourself you'll be paying half that much. After you see this video you'll understand why you'll want to.

This installation walk through shows you just how easy upgrading RAM in the new Retina iMac 5K really is, but the star of show is the performance test at the end. If you've got nearly $3,000 to drop on a computer, you might as well make it as powerful as possible. The results speak for themselves, and they're saying "holy crap that's powerful."
