    Need Advice on Buying a New iMac
    Hi everyone. My husband and I are looking to purchase a couple of iMacs within the next month. We are looking at the 24" with the 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. I'd like the 4gigs of memory but it seems ridiculously expensive - an extra $150 for 2gigs and an extra $850 for the 4 gigs. ?!?

    I have used Dell PCs over the last 10 years and am used to just popping out old memory and installing new stuff whenever I want to upgrade. Is that possible to do with this iMac or do you HAVE to go to the Apple Store in order to upgrade memory? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    no do not get memory through apple way over priced. There are several aftermarket brands (i am partial to crucial) buy your own and install yourself. It will cost a fraction of the price (i think around $200 for 4 gb), doesn't void your warranty, and only takes a few min to install.
