    I bought my imac january 2, 2008. I have the 24inch 2.8Ghz model with 2GB of RAM and 500GB HDD. Seeing how it's 2010, I wanted to up the RAM in it so I can get it running a bit faster. I understand that it supports up to 4GB of RAM but I was wondering if there was a way I could get it to support 8GB by means of 3rd party software or upgrading the BIOS or something if possible. Thanks for all the help!

    P.S. I apologize if this was a previous thread, I couldn't find anything of this sort.

    I'd like to add, that Apple computers don't have a BIOS only those that are called PC. EFI is used for the booting process on Apple computers.
