    I've had 3 hardware issues with my iMac G5 this month....the logic board is in the shop waiting to be replaced right now. I may be getting a replacement Mac but I was curious about the RAM.
    Is the RAM used in the Rev B iMac G5's the same as what is used in the Rev A iMac G5's? I spent $200 on a 1GB stick of RAM for my Rev A and if Apple ends up replacing it with a Rev B I'd like it to still work so I do not have to sell it and buy another stick.
    Thanks for any help.

    Yes, the Rev A and B use the same RAM.

    If however it is marginal RAM (not 100% Mac compatible) then you have some risk of it failing under OSX 10.4 when it had just squeaked under the wire on 10.3.8 or earlier.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. I've been running OSX 10.4 since they sent me my developers copy and I had the 1GB RAM stick in it before then......and saw zero problems that were RAM related. So hopefully I'm fine on that end.
