6 Ways to save money on Apple Products

Part 3 – buy your RAM on line

For those who love becoming the owner of a new piece of technology, nothing really competes with a new purchase from Apple.

Be it an iPhone, iPod or a shiny new iMac, all are objects of desire with just one snag – the price.

Apple products are notoriously expensive, although their millions of fans feel they get value for money in the long run even if it is very painful at the time of purchase.

If you try shopping around, there are usually very retailers who will discount any Apple product, but there are a few ways that can save some money when it comes time to treat yourself.

Here is the third in a series of 6 ways to save money when making your Apple purchase. Be sure to check back for the rest of the series.

3 – Buy an Apple computer with minimum RAM and purchase it online

Apple are quite notorious for charging very high rates for memory upgrades at the time of purchase.

It takes less than 5 minutes to upgrade the RAM memory on an iMAC, and at current prices, you could save nearly £100 if you upgrade to 16GB RAM from the standard 4GB.

RAM memory modules can be purchased from a number of on line retailers – Transform Accounting recommend “crucial.com”.


If you are scared of taking a screwdriver to a computer, then this money saving tip may not be for you.

To decide if this is an option for you – take a look at this demo on youtube showing how to install RAM on a 2011  iMAC


It really is very easy and even easier if you have seen someone demonstrating how to do it.
Take a look and then compare prices !

Good Luck!
