    Buying RAM - or disk - from Apple is really only worthwhile if you get
    some sort of comfort from having the machine delivered all set up by
    the manufacturer. And there _are_ people who have such needs for
    various reasons. If you're not among them, there's no reason to buy
    more than the minimum from Apple.

    I purchased additional memory from Crucial for my iBook (700Mhz 14") and
    my 2 month old PowerMac. I have had no problems and performance is great.
    Then again I am a Mac newbie barely one year and two months old and this
    is the first PowerMac I have ever used and owned. I do a fair amount of
    video editing as a hobby. This machine takes it all stride with !Gb of
    memory.
