Ram for 1.0 ghz eMac
Just purchased a refurb 1 ghz combo 40 gb hd on Apple.com!
This is for my mother-in-law.
I would like to update the RAM from 128. Does anyone know the revision of this model? I want to make sure I get the right RAM.
Oh by the way her first idea was to get "some computer from Wal-Mart, an e something oh yeah, emachine!"
Thank God I saved her from that nightmare.

...Or you could just tell him.
I have the same computer. It uses PC133 SDRAM, which is pretty cheap. You can easily get a 512MB chip to put in that extra slot for around $75 (don't use Crucial, they are a complete rip-off--it's cheaper to buy from your local Best Buy or Circuit City, or visit dealram.com). You can also get a 1GB chip (!) for only $200-$250. Although it doesn't sound like the person you bought it for will need that much. I use mine with 640MB and it works great.

I looked around and went to Bestbuy a little pricey because everyone has DDR ram now.
I went with 4Allmemory.com. That's where I picked up a 512 SO-DIMM for about $110.00 for my 1 ghz 17" iMac. A really good price! Not a problem at all basically free ground shipping.
I went with a 128 stick of pc133 for $36.00
She will have a solid 256. That should be fine for a while until the 3 children there really take off on the iLife apps!
Until then email, safari, word proc.
The best part is I get to play with it until I take it to their house!
Thanks for the help!
