    Im planning on getting an iMac this month. Apple RAM prices seem expensive. Is there anywhere recomended in the UK that I can get some from.

    I've always used Crucial.

    They aren't the cheapest but are way cheaper than Apple. Their memory is guaranteed to work with your Mac and you get free delivery, which has always been next day for me even though they class it as 3 day delivery.

    thanks for the quick replys

    what im thinking of doing then is getting the 24" 2.8 getting the least RAM and then maybe maxing out from crucial

    im trying to get what I can for the cheapest!

    I went with Crucial just last week - bought 2GB kit for a Macbook, and a 2GB stick for my incoming iMac (to give me 3GB). It arrived the next day and was a good price.

    Plus their website is very user-friendly - if you're not 100% sure of what kind of RAM you need, just use their RAM chooser and it does it all for you.

    I'll be doing the same this month with my new iMac. Remember, the iMacs now come with 1 stick of 1GB so if you're upping to 2GB you'll only need another 1GB stick, which on crucial is around £25 I believe
