    I was wondering if you can install from the previous gen of the iMac onto the current one?

    i have two extra 512 ddr ram from the last gen's 20" iMac and I was wondering how many slots there are on the new iMac and if I can add a 512 from the last gen to the current gen

    yep. It's PC-5300 running at 667MHz, so it's exactly the same as the previous gen. There's only two slots in the new iMacs, and they come with 1GB standard (512 + 512), so it wouldn't help you at all to swap them.

    but on their website it says the ram they come with now is one stick of 1GB

    1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM - 1x1GB

    I heard this type of ram you need two sticks of the same type of ram to make it work...is this true?

    Would it really work then if I have 1 512mb and 1 1GB ram?
