    Why are they offering 800Mhz RAM which is more expensive but cannot be used to its full potential? Is it simply to be future proof?
    They also claim that they do not support dual channel. I don't remember anyone pointing that out about the new iMacs.
    I don't see any 2Gb modules so where's everyone getting theirs for the full 4Gb? I don't feel like paying the Apple premium!

    Quite simply, they are wrong.

    "Why are they offering 800Mhz RAM which is more expensive"

    There's your answer, likely.

    I would had guessed because they where cheaper, if they where.

    Anyway, do we really KNOW that 800MHz so-dimm DDR2 won't work? I thought the problem earlier was that it didn't existed.

    Of course it should do dual channel?
