    Just ordered a new iMAC (27 inch, retina 5k, 3.3 GHz processor, 8GB memory, 512GB flash storage.....I want to upgrade the memory to 32GB,.....contacted Crucial and first question asked on chat was the model number....obviously don't have it since order is in process...was asked if it was a late 2015 model.......i would guess that the machine when delivered with be that model since i believe that is the most up to date model. Is this a correct presumption on my part or should i wait to get the machine to verify the model before ordering the memory upgrade? Thanks for your help.

    You ordered a new iMac and you're asking us what you bought?

    You purchased an iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, late 2015 model) - assuming you bought new and not refurbished, which you did not mention.
    This model supports up to 64 GB (4x16GB) of 204-pin PC3L-14900 (1867 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM memory.

    I don't know for sure whether this is the model you ordered, but there's definitely a model number here (underneath "Remove" in the top right corner):

    It's been a while since I've ordered from Apple, but I suspect your confirmation email has this model number as well.

    And if you had told us exactly what you bought - not the specs, but a model number - it would have been easier to give you a simple YES or NO. No need to be ugly about it.[/QUOTE]

    I WOULD JUST WAIT UNTIL THE IMAC ARRIVES TO BE 100% SURE BEFORE ORDERING MEMORY FOR IT. :eek:
