    I'm helping a friend install an additional 512MB ram chip in his new iMac G4 17".

    The Apple specs say: PC2700 (333MHz) DDR SDRAM expandable to 1GB; one 184-pin DIMM and one open user-accessible SO-DIMM slot.

    Anyone have any tips where to get the best deal on this chip? Pricewatch.com? Some websites have it, but they don't list SO-DIMM. Is this user accessible chip the same 184-pin that everyone is selling?

    Thanks in advance.

    Actually, I'm more interested in finding the proper chip, not so much a good price. Other World Computing at $79 for 512 is not bad, but I've seen it as low as $52 on Pricewatch.com. Thanks for responding.

    I wouldn't necesarily recomend buying the cheapest chip you can find at pricewatch.com. A lot of no name brand memory is crap and can screw up your computer.

    anybody know how to upgrade the 700mhz processor.

    Too slow to run a couple of apps like garage band, i think, and more importantly Medal of Honor.
