    I just bought a 24" iMac. it will be delivered sometime this week.

    I was just wondering whats the max number of external monitors it can support?

    Is it one or two?

    if its one then i will go with one 24 or 27/28 inch.
    if its two then i will go with two 20/22 inch ones.

    Also whats the max amount of ram supported on this? does the intel platform support 4gb of ram or is the max amount 3gb? if i run vista 64 bit will it be able to see 4gb?

    Without some kind of work-around your can connect 1 external monitor. You can connect more than 1 but it requires some kind of 3rd party hardware.

    It supports up to 3GB of RAM

    One external 24" monitor works fine, but I don't think it support higher. 3GB is the maximum until the switch to Santa Rosa I think. Then it will support 4GB.

    thanks.

    i was kinda hoping for two 22's but i guess one 24 will be fine.

    i think 2gb ram will be enough for now.

    i dont really need 3 large monitors. just wondering if i could do it.

    one 24 costs about 500.
    two 22's cost about 500.

    i would rather have two 22's instead of one 24.

    and in reality i dont even "need" one 24 inch monitor buts its nice to have.

    I believe so. Although I have never used them by myself.
