has announced 1GB memory upgrades for the latest revisions to Apple’s iMac. With these memory upgrades in place, users can have up to 2GB of memory installed — twice the memory capacity specified by Apple’s own documentation.
The new DDR333 memory upgrade work on the
Combo Drive-equipped iMac, the
1.25GHz Superdrive-equipped system and the brand new
1.25GHz Superdrive-equipped system that just debuted earlier this week.
iMacs come equipped with two memory slots — one is the User slot and the other is the Factory slot. Apple specifies that each slot can accommodate a 512MB memory chip, for a total of 1GB. These chips conform to Apple’s own electrical and mechanical design guidelines, however, which means that users can expand memory to a total of 2GB.
Trans Intl. sells the 1GB memory upgrades for User Slots for US$569 each. The 1GB upgrade for Factory Slots costs $219.
