    Now that we are inspecting each others hardware :) thru these forums, I was wondering what amounts of memory you all put in your precious babies ;)

    I would think everybody just goes to the max, with the memory prices being reasonable these days.

    Why go to the max?
    I have 512MB in my new iMac, it's enough for me... and for now :)
    Maybe I add a second 512MB chip next year..
    My dual G4 has 896 MB

    I currently have 2 x 512Mb DIMMS in my QS, I'm thinking about maxing it out to 1.5Gb by adding an extra 512Mb DIMM, but currently I don't need it...and besides...I'm saving for when the new PowerBooks are released :D

    I had just 10 options so I had to make a selection :)

    You can always vote the option "just scraped together some modules and ended up with 768MB" ;)

    192 MB in my iBook: came with 64 and added 128
    but now I wish I had added some more, also wish the iBook had another ram slot.

    I have two 512mb and one 128mb for a total of 1152mb. I want to get another 512mb to max it out but it is not really a necesary right now. I can get one for about $65 + shipping right now but I think they will go down even more with new powermacs being DDR. I will wait and see.

    wondering if there is a store that will let you trade in your 2 256 chips for one 512 and pay the difference. anyone know??? if so that would be killer.

    Power Macintosh 7600/132- 72MB
    Mac IIsi - 5MB
    Mac Plus - 4MB
    PowerBook 100 -4MB
    Mac Classic - 4MB

    TI-83 Calculator - 32KB

    I would get more memory for my PM but costs about AU$256 for 64MB
    And my computer has a whole lot of different modules stuck in but they still interlace well

    Macintosh Quadra 650- 64MB
    Macintosh Quadra 605- 36MB
    Macintosh Quadra 610- 8MB
    Macintosh LC575- 36MB

    AMD Athlon 1700+ - 768MB
