    I've read in a few places that it will support DDR3 RAM, but at what clock speeds? I'm reading conflicting reports that the will use 800, 1066, 1333Mhz.

    The current iMacs use DDR2 667Mhz, but will there be a jump in performance because of DDR3?

    Thank you so much. I'm getting an iMac as soon as the Montevina ones are released, so this is great news! Pity the first thing I'm going to do is install Windows... But it's only so I can play Half-Life 2 and Portal on my iMac with all the settings turn high.

    Will the RAM still be 200-pins in size, or will they opt for 240-pin instead do you think?

    They'll more then likely stick with the 200-pin SODIMM form factor. I'd wait to see some DDR3 SODIMMs first though. ;)

    I wonder how expensive they will be when they're released? Hopefully not too pricey.
