Probably because it requires the low profile memory (1"). Similar to PB, the lower RAM slot requires low profile vs the upper slot which allows high profile. The price (from a wide variety of vendors) appears to almost double.Originally posted by goglamosh
Can anyone explain to me why it costs around $100 more for the iMac to be upgraded to a 512 MB 168 Pin DIMM from a 256 MB Pin DIMM than the Power Mac?
Damn, I paid just over $200 when I picked up the 512MB chip I'm using in my new TiBook. I picked up the memory last year, when it was a bit more money then now.Originally posted by cb911
RAM isn't so bad now. a couple of weeks ago i got another 512MB for my TiBook. i got it for $400, thats about $120 cheaper than it was 4 or 5 months ago.
Figures... Still, even if it's a 2:1 ratio (their $ to US $) he got ripped. Especially when you can get it for $150 (US) today. It has been under $200 for some time now as well.Originally posted by Sun Baked
It's probably in those weird $ units Australians and Canadians like to confuse us with.
