All of a sudden, i am being rained with imacs... Very, very unbelievably cheap which one can only dream about ! ..that would explain a couple of my earlier threads about imacs...:D

So the situation i am facing arises as i am considering which one of the 21.5 imac should i rid....

Imac A is a late 2009 3.06ghz c2d with 8gb (1066 - at least thats wht i see, yet to confirm it) 1tb hdd with some visible marks on the body, which i cannt seem to rid ! Lastly i tried some Gin!

iMac B is 3.06ghz i3, with 4gb of 1333, 500gb hdd, with bootcamp- not that i cant install bootcamp in the other...just that it saves me the ride!

Logically i should be ridding the c2d, but the rams..... Can i fit the 1066 in the i3, as the minimum speed for i3 is 1333 (sourcing frm everymac). I dnt mind abt the hdd, but i am wanting to save the rams....

Will it be possible to use these 1066 in an i3 without issue.... Yeah true enough... I can upgrade the rams in the i3 with 1333s, but i am trying my luck...if i can get away with 1066s:p

You could try selling the 2009 iMac in the Lowyat forums, considering you're based in KL (I used to be based there too).

You can use 1066/1067MHz RAM in the 2010 iMac without any problems.

Hi, thx dude. So much slower speed rams will not bean issue....thats great.

I took a peek at the imac which had 1066 rams and i discovered that one of the rams was 1333 mixed with 1066s...i was glad. So i have fitted those rams in the 2010 imac, which is perfectly funtioning, though the details now show that i have 1067 rams instead of the 1333....i guess its due to the mixture....

Oh! U must hv been a local here...nice to hear frm u! True, low yat forum should help, though pricing in low yat forum is a no bull **** game... Cheers:)

Yeah sometimes stuff sold in WTS threads in lowyat forums are really 'potong leher' lol.

And yes, all RAM will run at 1067MHz, because of the mixture.
