Hi, I've never put in my own RAM before, but it sounds easy. I do, however, want to know exactly what kind of ram I need before I go in and some helpful tech givews me the wrong info. I'd rather not drive 20+ miles to the Apple store if I can avoid it.

I await the day that I have $2300 to get a new mac, but in the meantime, I just want to install programs that demand more RAM.

Thank you, thank you, Clare in IB, CA

Hi Clare, best thing to do if you don;t know much about RAM is visit RAM Memory Upgrade: Dell, Mac, Apple, HP, Compaq. USB drives, flash cards, SSD at Crucial.com the site can do a scan of your computer give you the exact RAM match for your machine and give you the links for buying it too. Hope this helps.

Can't wait till I get my new mac to really take advantage of this forum when I need to . . .

Glad you're all here.
