^^^This is true. I didn't want to get into details as to how much you might be able to squeze into your Mac, that is why it is just Apple Approved RAM Maxs'.

Thanks for the comment

Thanks iLaugh for the info. As Kash points out, there are many instances of the 'official' RAM figure published by Apple being at odds with what many models of Mac will actually take. I still don't know why Apple was so conservative. I think though that it's been 'up front' since the advent of the Intel machines.

Think Apple were being too conservative as hughvane suggest. For instane later eMac models will handle 2x1GB modules no problems, and recognise the full 2GB.

Something I have not looked into though, I would guess that if you put more than Apple's official max of RAM into your Mac, you might void any warrenty with Apple you may have.

If any one knows about this, please let us know.

I'm not sure if it voids it either?

But really the majority of people that would need to worry about trying to go higher than the max are more than likely people with older systems that are already out of warranty like me.

I have an eMac 1.42. When I get the money I plan on taking it up to 2gb and maybe even overclocking it a bit when I get good with soldering or find someone that is good enough to do it for me.
