Hi everyone

I bought my 20" iMac Just under a month ago and am looking to upgrade the RAM from 1GB to 2GB.

Can anyone tell me where i can get good (but cheaper than the RAM FROM APPLE costing 200 odd ) in the UK.

Any help is appreciated. Also OS X Rocks!!!!! This is my first ever Mac and NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER WILL I GO BACK TO WINDOWS!

ebuyer.co.uk - but remember, you have to buy 2x1GB sticks because it will have
1GB as 2x512MBs

also PC world isnt too pricey either, about £30 1gb stick

Is it laptop type RAM it takes or the standard type?

I would buy it from Crucial. They'll tell you exactly what kind of memory you need, guarantee compatibility and warranty for life. They are also the manufacturer, so you'll pay less than many other sites for top quality memory:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
