OWC ship new RAM chips
Other World computing has launched new Memory upgrades for Apple iMacs (Early 2008 models) and the 2009 White MacBook 13". The iMac offerings include a new DDR2 800MHz 4GB module and 6GB kit, allowing for a 5GB or 6GB setup that is not available from Apple. The 4GB memory module is $150 and the 6GB combo, which includes both 4GB and 2GB RAM modules, costs $170. OWC also has 2GB and 1GB options at substantially reduced pricing vs. Apple factory charges. The memory sticks carry a lifetime OWC warranty.
The new upgrades for the 13-inch 2009 White MacBook are the same RAM chips, rated at DDR2 800MHz. They carry similar pricing and specifications, providing either a 4GB single RAM chip or a 6GB pair, combining a 4GB chip with a 2GB chip.
OWC also offers rebates for any Apple RAM removed to make room for new chips, allowing customers to recoup some cash for the idle RAM. The new RAM chips are now shipping.
