Hi all, I am getting the top end iMac tmrw, I was going to upgrade the RAM from 2GB to 4GB with Apple for 120, but then I realised after reading here that its cheaper to buy the memory myself (65), is it easy to upgrade? and does it affect the apple warranty or anything?

many thanks

A couple places to look at. And it won't affect the warranty at all.
