    if you're not used to the system, how will knowing the RAM manufacturer help you in any bit? Not to sound like a jerk, but this should be the least of your concern.

    Why would you want to know the Manufacturer?

    But on topic: its likely to be Samsung.

    You can look up the manufacturer code in the System Profiler and google it. Or, you can remove the RAM from the iMac and examine it physically.

    You do not need RAM from the same manufacturer. Buy from OWC, Crucial, or any other seller.
