    I know many of us are buying a 1GB iMac and swapping out or just adding an additional 2GB stick. What is the best deal out right now. Many I see are about $100. Please share your cost and at which website/store. TIA

    Be careful to read the fine print on rebates. Often, there's a "one item per household" restriction. If you buy two identical items, you might be eligible for only one rebate.

    ...nothin' in TheRuleBook sez it has to make sense,

    I bought two, they were the same module, and the 4GB works fine... I ran memtest86+ and memtest on them for days without any errors.

    Even if you can claim only one rebate, its still a good deal as Corsair is generally well regarded memory.

    http://www.dealram.com is a good place to get a feel for what memory is costing these days.

    I like buying stuff from Amazon. Free shipping and no tax. Just bought dual sticks (1gb x 2) for my iMac. Heck, I bought my iMac from Amazon as well last year. No tax, free shipping. I can't get enough of that.

    The mushkin.com online store has some good prices at the moment -- slightly cheaper than newegg:

    1 x 2GB "Mushkin Value Memory" @ $72 per stick

    1 x 2GB "Perfectmatch for Apple" @ $81 per stick

    Flat-rate US-snail first class @ $3 per order

    ...and no mail-in-rebate foolishness!

    Good eye. Muskin makes good stuff. I opted for some PQI on newegg @ 59/stick.. lifetime warranty. I hope it's not poo for memory. Good thing I have 30 days to figure that out. (126.xx shipped for 4GB)

    Thanks! no need to fear then. :) still looking for the best deal. I won't get my new iMac for a couple of weeks so I'm not sure if I should pull the trigger on the RAM since it keeps dropping.
