    When I got my iMac 20" I choose to get apple to max out the memory to 2gb for €310 because there were stock problems with onlne retailers.

    3 months or so later I go onto Crucial.com/eu

    http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/listparts.asp?Mfr%2BProductline=Apple%2BiMac&mfr=Apple&tabid=AM&model=iMac+1.83GHz+Intel+Core+Duo+%2817-inch%29&submit=Go

    And find that the memory is still shockingly priced at €167 per piece of 1gb mem hence still more expensive that maxing out with apple.... 310 versus 334....

    Is there anywhere cheaper for Europe than this....

    Apple prices have always been way off the mark, but now being cheaper than one of the main suppliers of mem is bizzare,,

    Crucial and Apple both are known for high prices. Although I don't know of any retailers in the UK, you're sure to find better deals :)

    Scan (in the UK)

    £65 =~ 95EUR.

    No idea if they will deliver to mainland Europe though. It's branded good quality RAM too!
