    Hi guys

    I bought an iMac 24" 3.06 in July 2009 and I got it with 4gb of RAM. Doing a check on Crucial it says it can hold a max of 8gb (getting a quote for £40 for 2*4gb).

    Question is, can it take more as I know sometimes the official max is not the real max? ie 16gb?

    TIA

    Cheers

    Yep....8GB is the official and unofficial max....but my machine (see sig) works great with 8GB, I can give my Parallels VM 4GB and still have 4GB for the host OS.

    Ram arrived this morning and installed.

    Crikey - what a difference the extra 4gb makes! If had known this would have only cost £40 I would have done it a long time ago.

    Many thanks again.

    Cheers
