    Seriously: anyone paying $700 for Apple's 4GB RAM upgrade? I know why Apple is doing it - easy profit. Sooner or later they're going to have to respond dramatically. But $700 versus $150 or so on Crucial? C'mon!

    Whoah; actually hit your Newegg link. Great Price! I paid for mine at Crucial 3 weeks ago. Prices falling by the day it seems.

    If you buy the Apple ram retail the 4 GB's is 1000 dolllars. Seriously, wtf? I bought 2 of those Transcend 2GB sticks for 80 dollars. I saved over 900 dollars.

    Don't use crucial. If you haven't heard already, they use "dynamic pricing :mad:" to get the extra dollar (or 20) out of you. Newegg consistently has the best prices, just read the reviews first.

    Wow, and I thought I knew a thing or two. Maybe not - first I hear of this. The post you listed is almost 2 years old - wonder if they're still doing this to some degree. Nevertheless, I've had no problems with Crucial, and they have a guarantee that's pretty darn hard to beat, so maybe the few extra $$ is for peace of mind....

    My new Macbook when I buy it next year will get a memory upgrade, and NOT from Apple - no f'in way.

    I checked the reviews. Apparently this doesn't work in the Aluminum Intel iMacs. Or maybe he just got a dead stick...

    Had many issues with Crucial memory and have stopped buying it. Much better memory out there from others.

    Yes, even though the link is 2 years old, they still do dynamic pricing! WTF is that???

    Hello!

    I'm going to be purchasing the 20 inch 2.4 Ghz Aluminum iMac, and I was wondering if this RAM will work in it?

    I'm sort of new to upgrading my computer, I've had a laptop for most of my life, so I've never really been able to without some serious 'HAX!1'

    Your help would be greatly appreciated, I refuse to pay 1000 dollars for 4 gigs of ram!

    Thanks!
