    Apple has a 14 day exchange policy if you a new model comes out within those 14 days, you can exchange it.

    I bought the 20" iMac 2.4 with 1 gig of ram. I bought 2 more gigs of Ram (3rd party from Crucial.com). I found out I could only use one of those gigs in the other empty slot.

    Question is: when I exchange this mac for the new one (2.66), it comes with 2 gigs of ram... will I be able to use my ram (2 sticks - 1 gig each) in the new mac?

    No, it still only has two physcially ram slots, which are already filled with 2x1 GB memory.

    Full specifications are here.

    It's still 2 x 1 GB for 2 GB of RAM.

    So I guess I need to return these gigs.
    I have one already in use - probably not returnable.
    The other is still packaged up.
    Were only $25 each... I'll return the other and at least get $25 back.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm waiting to hear back from Crucial about returning these gigs.
    I sent them an email.

    I'll send you a PM.
