    I've done some reading before posting but I'm still a bit confused... I even check on iFixit to see if the question was asked, but no luck...or I overlooked...

    I pre-ordered the new iMac 27' last november/december.
    3.2Ghz i5 with standard 1TB HD. Upgraded the Graph for the 2Gb 680.

    1. Can I swap an SSD in it or is it too late?

    2. Can I upgrade the graph card with the new ones released a few days ago? (708 with 4GB)?

    Thank you!

    GPU swap, I doubt it.

    SSD... You'd have to take the display off to get to the guts of the machine, but it's possible.

    You could use an SSD in an external USB 3 or TB caddy and boot from that tho.
