    Hi everyone,
    I'm desperately trying to upgrade my memory on my ancient iMac... I went to the local computer hardware store and they don't stock the correct memory for it. Can anyone link me to somewhere I can purchase online? Or what I need to be looking for?

    Tech Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    2.16 GHz
    1 Processor
    2 Cores
    4MB L2 Cache
    1GB Memory
    667 MHz Bus Speed

    I'd like to pump up the memory as much as I can!

    We have one here with 3GB. You can install 4GB, but only 3.3GB will be usable even though it'll show 4GB as installed.

    You can buy it here:


    p.s. don't tell my wife her iMac is ancient.
