Thread: New iMac Question (Memory)
08-25-2006, 03:42 PM #1OldGuyPeteGuestNew iMac Question (Memory)
Happy to find this place. Question:
My girlfriend just bought a new 20" iMac (Dual Core) 2Ghz.
Came with 512 Memory.
I have a surprise for her (I HOPE she doesn't read this place!)
Anyway... I ordred this:
DDR2 1GB PC2-5300 (667MHz) CL-5 SO-Dimm Patriot Signature PSD21G6672S
(Two of them) to replace the 512 that the machine came with. I figure I can throw the 512 on eBay or something and make somebody who only wants to double their memory happy... anyway).
That memory specs out the same, correct? How come then when I called Patriot and asked them they said it "should" work but because it is an Apple they can't promise it will? What the heck is up with that?
Am I ok? Or did I goof?
Thanks for reading,

Edit: Sorry, I forgot to add that OutPost (where I bought it) says it will work. The rep even gave me his name (first and last) -- so *THAT* is why I'm so confused.
Ok, Thanks again.

You should be fine as long as they match up to Apple's specs. I haven't seen any brand name problems. I have a couple of gig sticks comming in tomorrow acually, Corsair Value memory, $190 shipped from zipzoomfly. Can't wat till it comes in.. But the iMac Intel is already fast to me!!
