Heya fellows,

I was wondering, does the iMac have a Dual Channel Memory?

I was talking with a friend lately about it, and I wasn't sure, because the iMac comes with standard just 1x 1 GB RAM, so that would not make sense, but when it comes with 2 GB it gets 2x 1 GB and 4 GB is logical 2x 2GB,

So does the iMac use Dual Channel Memory?

Thanks!

And as final touch,God created the Dutch!

Yes.. They are Dual Channel.

The 1 x 1GB is a welcome change from previous 1GB models the were (2 x 512MB)... This way to upgrade to 2GB, you need only to purchase a single 1GB stick of 3rd Party RAM.

Is it worth to buy a 2 GB RAM stick?

If you should give a shot and guess who many of the 2 GB you would really use, how much would it be?

Don't wanna spend money on thins I don't use

You would need to be running multiple VERY RAM intensive apps to use up 3GB of RAM.... even 2GB of RAM is overkill for many many users.

Okey,

But having a PC with some spare isn't too bad either in my eyes

Ok still, could you mention some programs that need a minimum of 2 GB (or 3 )
