Can iMac late 2013 work with a 4tb ssd?
my question is this: does any of you knows of any hardware/firmware/software limitation of this imac that will prevent it from operating with a 4tb ssd installed? has anyone here successfully made such a replacement?
i currently have a 3tb fusion drive installed in my late 2013 imac, and it’s almost full. the drive has started failing, forcing me to restore from backups, twice this year. naturally, i have been studying the hard drive replacement/upgrade instructions. i would prefer an ssd, but i have a lot of data (photos) which i would rather not offload to an external drive. the ifixit upgrade kit optionally comes with ssds ,but only up to 2tb. elsewhere, i have seen 4tb ssds that are within my budget.
a staff member in my neighborhood apple store said that the reason apple does not ship imacs with ssds larger than 2tb is that the connection bus only allows up to 2 tb. that makes no sense to me. (i think the price of 4tb ssd was simply too high when apple made the specs.) but it did leave me uncertain.
all the best
