      Hi,
      I have late 2009, i5, 2,66 Ghz, 8 gb ram ( 4x2 1067 mhz) 27" Imac. I want to upgrade it to 16 gb or 20 gb if it is possible. In my country, there is no so many option to buy appropriate mem. sticks. Do you advice to me that buy these rams that below ?

      Wow good day sir! How are you? I am still out and about here...

      I have since long sold my 2009 iMac, as I moved overseas. Things have really changed here for me. Pop me an IM and we can talk some more :)

      Hey DoFoT9!

      I don't have a BD drive in my iMac, I have an internal one I hook up externally with a cheap SATA to USB cable (I paid less than $110 for the BD burner and cable last year, it also makes for the fastest DVD and CD burner around too, 8x BD speed is only 36MB/second so USB 2.0 is good enough).

      I do have the 2009 Quad Core i7 2.8GHz, and I love it, you can buy a brand new one for under $1699 now (I paid $1599, no tax, no shipping cost) and 16GB is less than $200 now too. The hyper-threading works wonders, it does easily run close to 800% in the Activity monitor with HandBrake and Folding@home, etc. The Core i5 iMac will only show 4 cores (no Hyper-threading).

      You can upgrade to 16GB for less than $100 now, then sell your Hynix 2x2GB (Apple included) for $50+ to anyone with 2008 or newer Mac. Tell them it's top quality from Apple for half the cost.

      This is where I get my SODIMM Memory:

      Hello gatortpk! I wish I could afford a BD drive in my iMac (2009 i7 model, right?), I only have an external one currently. 12GB is lots of RAM, however not quite enough for me, I might be upgrading to 16GB soon.

    I've had a Mac since 1984 (yes, still have the 128k "Thin" Mac). I have owned 20+ Macs as well as several required PCs for work (latest is a Skylake i7-6700K with GeForce GTX 980 Ti with two 4K displays). I do computer repair and make house calls. I like to read about science and technology.
