    Is the ram on the e-mac upgradeable? I would like to put more ram into my mom's e-mac, I think 128MB is a bit low...

    Also, what is a good price for ram? (probably two 512s)

    thanks...

    The eMac can take 1GB max in 2 x 512mb sticks. Depending on the eMac, it either takes PC133 or DDR ram. DDR would be a lot cheaper, since PC133 is no longer made and is now pretty expensive unless bought used.

    the emac by apples specs can take 1GB
    but in reality it can handle 2GB

    i have an emac 1.25 with 1.5 GB in it
    512 from crucial and 1 GB from OWC

    both have worked fine
    i just need to get the other 1 GB from them

    PC133 is not out of production :rolleyes:

    The 1 GHz USB 2.0 model , 1.25 and 1.42 GHz models took DDR PC2700 (although PC3200 is commonly used) and can go to 2 Gb maximum with 2 x 1 Gb DDR DIMMs.

    Model numbers: M9423LL/A; M9424LL/A; M9425J/A; M9425LL/A; M9461J/A; M9461LL/A; M9834LL/A; M9835LL/A; M99832; M99833; M99834; M99835
