Hi everybody,

I have the 24-inch mid 2007 Intel iMac and on the Apple support web page (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1760) I found out that its maximum RAM memory is 2GB+2GB = 4GB.

However in my iMac paper instructions (Installing Additional memory) I read: "You can add a 1GB ou 2GB memory module dor a maximum of 3GB on memory."

So my max RAM memory is it 3 or 4GB ??

I know it is not an easy question, but if somebody can help me..
Thank you.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2.16 GHz Intel 3GB 250GB

    Hi tos: If the iMac shown in your signature is correct and it is a 2.16gHz model, it is really a late 2006 model. To verify go to the Apple in the top left corner select About this Mac, then More info. At the top of that list it should show the model identifier. I suspect yours is a 6,1. If so it will max out a 3 gB, although 4 can be installed.

    Hope this helps

    Hi, stedman,
    You are right, the About this Mac says that my iMac model is 6,1. I am not the first owner of this computer and I thought that it is the mid 2007 model..
    If I understand well, I can install the second 2MB RAM module, but my iMac will only support 3 GB total memory, so do you think it's worth to try it ?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi tos, i've actually just been looking into this myself (albeit for the 20" model) and I found this useful page: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/faq_cd/imac-intel-how-to-upgrade-memo ry.html

    It seems that the official maximum memory for this line of iMacs is 3GB, but you can upgrade to 4GB and many tasks do seem quicker as a result. Hope that helps.
