So today they released the new iMac. Still no reviews so I have no clue whether I was right or wrong about the chipset. So I’ve started looking into another pet topic of mine: RAM. I really would like these machines to take a bucket-load of RAM, but Apple still limits themselves to 16GB.

OWC shipped 32GB kits for the last version, and in this blog comment they confirm they expect it to work well on the current iMac as well. In fact, they already sell 32GB kits for the 27” iMacs, but at almost $3000!

So far I haven’t seen people report on the previous generation iMac any brand of RAM that would supposedly work but didn’t, and Amazon has a kit for $817 that I would expect to work. But no reports yet, so this’ll have to be investigated.

Update: Disregard the amazon-link, the iMacs need 204-pin SO-DIMM DDR3 RAM running at 1333 Mhz. The Amazon link was 240-pin
