    A friend of mine has an eMac and he's looking to upgrade his RAM to use photoshop. He just bought a Canon Rebel DSLR camera and really wants to start digging in with it and photoshop. I'm trying to figure out what RAM he uses ( I believe it is PC133 168 PIN DIMM RAM). Do they sell 1GB sticks for this eMac? If not, is the standard/factory installed 128MB stick removeable or is it soldered like some of the iMacs? It would be ideal for him to just add a 1GB stick of RAM to his machine if possible. Thanks for any help!

    Lot of data, unfortunately none of it relevant.

    There are two models of 1 GHz eMac: the USB 1.1 model with PC133 SDRAM, and the USB 2.0 model with PC2700 DDR RAM

    THere should be a sticker on the machine with the model number
    Models M8891LL/A, M8950LL/A, M8951LL/A, M8951LL/B, M9252LL/A, M9150LL/A take PC133 SDRAM

    1 Ghz eMacs Models M9423LL/A, M9424LL/A and all of the 1.25 and 1.42 GHz models take DDR PC2700 RAM
