    Hello

    I own an iMac 27" with the stock 2x2Gb RAM.

    I would like to pimp it out with 4x4Gb RAM. I often run a development environment next to virtualisation machines, some Adobe creative suite apps.

    This is what I want:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCZ-Memory-PC3-8500-1066MHz-Unbuffered/dp/B001CNR39U

    Except in a single 4GB module; however, I don't seem to find shops carrying what I need. The Apple manual mentions you can go up to 16Gb.

    Is this a future thing or is it now? I'm willing to spend around 300 euros / 266 GBP / 432 USD.

    The next best solution is 8 Gb, which would probably suffice for my needs (and I would only have to spend 80 euros)

    However, I haven't been able to find a shop that ships to Belgium. The third party sellers on Amazon don't. Who knows a shop with good prices that ships internationally?

    Thanks in advance!

    Try http://www.macsales.com

    not sure if they are international though. I recommend adding just 2x2 so you have 8. 16 gigs (4x4) costs too much right now.

    I second that. Don't bother with 16GB right now. 8GB is really cheap to do since you just add another 2x2GB to the existing 2x2GB.
