    Alright, I was interested in a RAM upgrade and I saw that from crucial it was about 100 dollars for 2 2gb sicks. I was wondering if anyone found anything cheaper.

    I think newegg.com has some 2x2GB SO-DIMMs for around $75.

    Memory discussion here usually leads to OWC or Crucial. I don't think you'll go wrong with either. I like OWC, but if Crucial is cheaper, that's not a bad route.

    Does new 21,5 iMac supports 16gb ram (does it have two or four slots) or this is only valid for 27 inchers?

    They have 4 slots. If you look at the Apple specs, you can upgrade to 16gb RAM.

    Just want to confirm this

    The 21.5 inch iMac can take upto 16GB (4x4GB) beacuse it has 4 slots for memory just like the 27 inch? I saw the web site offer an upgrade to 8GB (4x2GB). But I want to be sure that I was interpreting this correctly.

    Thanks for the help.
