    Hi all, I'm new to these forums. I just figured I'd give you guys a heads up on a RAM deal that I picked up yesterday for my iMac. Fry's has this RAM for $19.99 after a $15 rebate. I installed it last night in my 24" iMac and it performs flawlessly. Here's a link for the older aluminum iMacs (PC5300):

    Here's a link for the newer aluminum iMacs (PC6400):

    Good eye! Unfortunately, I don't have the time today to pick some of those up.

    Thanks! One thing to keep in mind is that those links allow you to order online so even if you don't have a Fry's nearby you can still order the RAM online. Also, the only way to get this price in-store is to order it online with in-store pickup (which is what I did), as the price at the store is $69.99.

    fool

    not to sound like a fool, but is this also the same ram modules for the slightly older macbook pros, C2D from a few months ago?

    Are only the NEWEST macbooks pros DDR3?

    Yes, the second link would be what you'd use for the latest iMacs. To verify, click on the Apple logo on the top left side of your screen and click about this computer. If it says that your RAM is ddr2 667 MHz, you'll want the pc5300 from the first link. If it says that your RAM is ddr2 800 MHz, you'll want the pc6400 from the second link.

    No problem. If you have a few month old Macbook Pro, you'll want the RAM from the first link, as your computer uses ddr2 667 MHz RAM. Only the newest refreshed models utilize ddr3.
