If I order RAM off of newegg, can I look under "laptop memory" for the iMac RAM? Is it the same as in the macbooks? SO-DIMM DDR2 667 PC5300?

Thanks!

Check Crucial.com. If you use the Memory selector tool, it will tell you exactly what type of memory your computer uses.

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!

Don't know why I never thought about that before but i think you can. Here's a link:

Looks like the imac uses 200 pin DDR2 667 PC2-5300. That's super special!

*ALL* Intel Macs except the Mac Pro, use EXACTLY the same spec of DDR2 ram.

PC-5300 DDR2 667Mhz SODIMM ram

Oh, and forget newegg dude; the informed user, goes to http://www.crucial.com

Anyone knows that!
