If you can expand the iMac's memory to 2 GB, then why can't you have apple do that for you? On the iMac's site it only allows up to 1GB????

Can someone clarify this, or am I missing something?

*Do I get a reward for reviving an old thread?

The Apple site will always tell you that the G4 (1.0 & 1.25) iMacs will only support up to 1GB total RAM. I have a 1.25 G4 iMac and have the stock 256MB RAM in the factory slot and a 512MB stick in the user slot. I called Apple Help and they told me the G4 iMac can, safely, be upgraded to a max of 2GB of RAM. The catch is this: they told me that if you have Applecare and need to send your machine in for repair, you must put the RAM back to a max of 1GB as they will not offer help and/or support for anything over 1GB RAM.

I just bought a 1GB stick of RAM from and put it into the user slot and noticed a big kick in the pants. Much faster and much smoother operation using Tiger 10.4.2 and Photoshop.

I'll keep the 512MB RAM stick set to the side for the odd chance I would have to use my AppleCare.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.
