Hi I just picked up the new iMac 17''. Darn this thing is Ram Hungry! I will most likely upgrade the memory to a 1 GIG, my question is. Is there a Dual Slot in the Mac with just a 512 installed where all i have to do is get another 512? Or is there only 1 slot for the memory and I have to get a 1GiG Stick?

This is my first Mac so bare with me please.

Thanks in advance for any feedback

On the stock model there is a 512 chip built in that you can't change, there is also the extra memory slot that you can change (comes empty) so yes you can just buy a 512 chip and then you will have one GB. A good place to buy memory is RamJet.

Is it the Intel or PowerPC?

The last PowerPC rendition has 512 mb of RAM soldered to the motherboard, along with two free slots (with RAM maxing out at 2.5 gb).

On the new Intels, there's no onboard RAM, with two slots (limiting you to 2 gb).

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.
