    wow

    I had no idea you could crank the RAM in the 17" and new iMacs up to 8GB. Nice. :)

    Don't forget the 6GB

    They also are offering a 6GB upgrade kit for $380. This is interesting because it is: 1. Significantly cheaper than the 8GB option 2. Has the ram installed in non-matched pairs (1 4GB and 1 2GB), which I thought was a requirement for ram to be recognized correctly by Leopard, but perhaps I am wrong.
