    If anyone was interested in upgrading the ram in their new Imac with the 1333 mhz ram here is a nice link to an ebay page selling same SAME RAM installed in the Imac for $99.99 a stick and its 4 GIGABYTES!!!
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200493041054&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_2527wt_913

    They even ship over seas.
    This will save you so much money over Apples Hefty ram prices.
    And it is the same exact Samsung 4GB sticks that are shipping in 50% of the Imacs. They just have a Super Talent sticker on them. And on Super talents website it says its 100% mac compatible ram.:apple:
    I love you Apple.
    But Cmon with the Ram prices.

    Wow what happened to SODIMM prices?

    When I first read this I thought it had to be a scam, they were near 400-500 for a single 4GB SODIMM this time last year.

    Now the avg price seems to be 105.

    the new egg one looks like a better option.. i am looking for a 16GB as well. so its really down to $419 for 16GB ? is that all i need 4 sticks on 4 GB?

    $105 a piece? They're £110 ($165) a piece In the UK. And importing is ridiculous as you have to pay huge amounts of import tax.
