Taken from MacRumors (full article here): This shit is just getting out of hand. I figured anyone looking to buy a new iMac would want to know this first. I love Apple and their products, and sometimes they make dick moves, but this crap is just irritating. Fuck all if I'm ever paying the Apple tax on hard drives or RAM. EDIT: Several members on the MacRumors forum have found the opposite to be true of what OWC had been reporting. While MacRumors itself has always been a very reliable source of information, this is one case where their source could potentially be wrong. So while the possibility is still there, take this report with a grain of salt.
