    Was just wondering, as I have new iMac but was wondering if I return it I will be stuck with Extra ram I purchased.
    Could it be used in 2012 iMac? Sorry for being a noob

    Thanks in advance

    Until the 2012 iMacs are released, no one but Apple knows for certain. Quite probably, but not guaranteed.

    Yes for sure, wait no I'm not sure :rolleyes:

    Honestly, I would like to say it's "backwards compatible" because it will still be DDR3 regardless of speed...

    But if the clock speed of the RAM for the 2012 iMacs increase, then you won't get that benefit of faster supported RAM.
