    Hey guys,

    I'm looking into getting a 2GB kit for my 24" iMac and of course i was going to go straight to Crucial as i know it will work at at £60 its really a good deal. But i just came across this on ebuyer


    Its £49.99 but you get £10 off with google checkout. I'm wondering if this will work with the iMac.. its the same speed etc but i thought i would double check before i take the plunge.

    Thanks Guys!!

    Won't work. These are full-size DIMMS. The iMac requires SO-DIMMS which are primarily intended for notebooks. They are typically more expensive, too.

    yep that stylish enclosure comes at a price, the components cost more!

    i have 2gig in my 24"er and she flys - until i launch photoshop and my ibook starts to look like a speed demon. :(

    cruicial is usually a good bet.

    Get it from Other World Computing...www.macsales.com or TransIntl.com

    I get all my RAM from them...it's a no brainer and much less expensive...

    You can get a 3GB kit (1 2GB and 1 1GB) from transintl for around $165.

    Let me know how that goes!

    Quick question, will Santa Rosa use DDR2 or DDR3?

    According to Wikipedia... same DDR2 RAM we're seeing today. But don't start buying RAM for it just yet.

    I was looking at getting extra memory when I get my iMac. I noticed that Transintl.com has the Samsung 2GB stick for $22 less than OWC. Does anyone here know which is better to do business with? If I could save a few bucks, that would be cool. However, unless I'm missing something, I don't see anything on Transintl.com about the warranty behind the memory. I'm assuming it's lifetime?:)
