Apple iMac desktop computers are a fantastic computer that offers great design, excellent operating system with lots of free software included and connectivity options for printers or Apple iPods.
But one thing that cripples the performance of the Apple iMac is the lack of computer memory installed. Save for a few powerful Apple servers and professional desktop models most Apple computer models ship with just enough memory installed to boot up the Mac OSX operating system and run a few of the free applications the Apple iMac models ship with.
But for less than the cost of a nice dinner out you can add and upgrade the memory in your Apple iMac for maximum performance.
One would think that adding more iMac Memory at the same time and same place you bought your Apple iMac from would make the most sense. In most cases, this means you would upgrade your iMac with RAM bought from the Apple store, regardless of whether you bought the Apple iMac memory online or in person.
The problem with buying RAM from Apple directly is the price. Apple memory seems to be priced considerably higher than if you bought the RAM from a respectable third party memory store which is what I recommend.
You get more choice with your Apple RAM Upgrades when doing this as opposed to buying your iMac Memory from Apple directly. When buying ram elsewhere you have more choice as you can choose to buy either brand name memory from a memory store you can trust such as crucial technology or techworks, or you can choose to save more money on iMac RAM and buy generic ram which is still manufactured to the same exact specifications as the name brand memory but costs much less and still comes wit a lifetime money back guarantee.
