    Im thinking of getting a new 24 iMac dual,
    I have a 20" iMac 1.8 first gen now, with 1.5 G RAM, can I pull the 1 G RAM stick and use in the new iMac dual?
    Thank you
    ...and is RAM very expensive right now, I bought the 1 G stick 6 months ago for about $200...

    No, the RAM is completely incompatible.

    I recommend OWC and DMS...great companies that know Macs, have great products, and have great customer service. 1 GB sticks with lifetime warranties are going for about $125 at both places.

    Do the C2D 17, 20, and 24" iMacs support the same type of RAM?

    Yes, except the bottom of the line one does not support the 3 Gb total possible with 1 Gb + 2 Gb modules.
