Well, the ones I found were $75 to $150 for the A1311.
I might take it apart tonight and see what's what.
Wonder if I could reuse the ram in a 27? Have to look into that, don't want to waste 16 gigs.
Edit: What the hecks the name of that app with all the mac specs? I don't have it on the laptop and cant remember the name.
Another reason to take apart. I was having fan problems and was using HDD Fan control for runaway fans (don't know which one). I think one of the sensors is borked.But…if the video card issue is sporadic (computer works for a while…then the video goes bad after a while is use). Then maybe the problem is heat related…and opening up the computer to clean it may help things (better cooling).
1. Non-replaceable ram in the 27" retina iMac.
Nick: You're mixing the retina iMac up with the retina MacBook Pro machines. The memory in the retina iMac is fully user replaceable. But you're right about Craig's memory from the 2009 machine not working in a retina iMac.
Maybe do the stick it in the oven trick?
