Please see here for reference. Apparently I am able to load two 2GB modules in my MacBook despite the original specs, which said 2GB total max.


So, can I do similarly on my '08 iMac, currently maxed out at 4GB? I.e., cram two 4GB modules into it? If it turns out the system can only address 6GB-7GB of that (as with the MacBook), that's OK. Turns out Mt. Lion is heavier lifting than this thing's used to. (I've considered a drive upgrade but that would require professional help. RAM I can do myself.)


Processor  2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo


Memory  4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM


On the other hand, I did some looking around and it would appear that DDR2 PC2-6400 is not available larger than 2GB. Would some other format do as well?


Thanx muchly,




P.S., I eagerly await the next release of iMacs, whenever that might actually happen...

iMac (24-inch Early 2008), OS X Mountain Lion
