    I am obviously not using the correct search terms to find this info, but I want to upgrade my iMacs RAM. The system I have is a refurb 21.5 iMac with 3.06 GHz dual core processor. I want to go from the current 4Gig to 8Gig. Everytime I check the different sites for their online memory guides, I see the 3.06 Intel in the 24" but not in the 21.5. Are they the same? I just want to order the right memory the first time. Thanks in advance.

    Download the System Scanner from the Crucial website. It will tell you what RAM you need to purchase.

    Nice find. I actually purchased it at that price last week. Since Amazon prices seem to change almost daily, I found that Safari webclips works very well to keep track of the changes.

    RAM prices have been changing a lot lately, mainly raising of course :rolleyes: Few months ago, 2x2GB of DDR3 was about 70$ and now it's +110$

    Wow. The price changes quick.
    I paid $84 from B&H on 2/15.
