    Hi,

    I will order the 20inch iMac and will finally say bye bye bye to Windows but .... what to do with the memory? I would like to have over time a 2Gb monster. Should I order it with 512Mb and then buy 2 1Gb modules at Crucial for USD 145 each or is it ok to order the iMac through Apple with a 1Gb dimm and later upgrade to 2Gb. Would it in that case be ok to have two different "brands" of memory in the same Mac?

    Many thanks for your advice!!! Michiel

    I would just or 2 1GB sticks from Crucial. 512MB will be more than good until then.

    yea apple is pricey when it comes to RAM. but its not always the best idea to have two different companies in there at the same time. i would just spend the extra money and get it factory apple. that gives me a comfort factor that i like a lot. if you dont do that then at least get as little RAM factory and get the same company's ram when you upgrade yourself
