    Does anyone have a guess on how much the Apple store charges to install ram? I have 8 gigs I really just want 32 I got 2 open slots left

    -Update-

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)
    Get memory specifications for iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015), then learn how to install memory in this model.

    Memory specifications
    This iMac model feature Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (SDRAM) slots near the bottom of the computer with these memory specifications:

    Number of memory slots 4
    Base memory 8GB
    Maximum memory 32GB
    Use Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Modules (SO-DIMM) that meet all of these criteria:

    • PC3-14900
    • Unbuffered
    • Nonparity
    • 204-pin
    • 1867MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    My Mac

    First of all, what computer do you have? Since about mid-2012, you can only add RAM to some of the iMacs... and, assuming that the RAM in your iMac is upgradeable, Apple will charge you about double what you would pay to buy the RAM and install it yourself.

    If you can see the slots, it's a Do It Yourself. Post what Mac you have and someone will respond to a page with instructions. It's easy.

    If you can't see the slots — any 21.5" iMac, for example — you'll have to learn how or get a tech to do it. The 2013-on Mac Pro is a DIY, however.

    The Apple Store will only sell and install RAM into specific models and years. To get the price you will need to call and book an appointment.

    Click on the Apple Logo in the upper left corner... choose About This Mac... click on the Memory tab... click on the Memory Upgrade Instructions in the lower right corner... and check the instructions...

    Price the memory at OWC (MacSales.com)
