8gig of ram is the max. for this computer…and will cost about $100. So if you have a $200 limit…this leaves you $100 for the storage upgrade.

Can't see the Crucial link. OWC 2 x 4GB modules comes in at less than $100.00.

Amazon sells the same Crucial modules for $71.00 plus free shipping. When I installed additional memory in my iMac, I priced both the Crucial modules and the ones from OWC. OWC was the most expensive, Crucial a bit less expensive, and Amazon had the best price for the same Crucial modules plus free shipping.

The approx. $100 I mentioned above for 8gig of ram was from OWC. If you can get it for $71 from Amazon (as chscag mentioned)…definitely go for it!!!:) Can't beat the free shipping as well!!!:):)
