I've been wanting to upgrade to snow leopard on my Intel iMac for quite a while now, but I've been putting off buying more RAM for it. When i finally did decide to upgrade, i just added this 1GB next to it's existing 512 stick and the machine was instantly faster. my boot time was nearly cut in half, and snow leopard installed smoothly. I'm really glad i got the extra RAM for that machine.
Recently I discovered my brother's Macbook Pro was running on a 1GB chip and a 512MB chip. I knew this had to change since he was looking to upgrade his OS to Snow Leopard. I swapped out the 512MB chip for the 1GB chip before installing the OS just to make sure the chip worked properly. Once the chip was installed I upgraded the OS and his machine has been happily running 10.6 ever since.
This is only the second time I have installed my own Mac RAM. The first time, I did it for a friend--his G3 Powerbook; that time, I bought it at ANOTHER online source, and while the Mac started up fine and worked for a week, eventually there were kernel panics and the RAM turned out to be bad. They rectified the situation quickly and well, but it did make me nervous about my next attempt. So recently I bought two 1G cards to spruce up my new intel imac. (I figured if I was going to up the RAM I might as well max it out!) Small dog answered all my questions and the chips were easy to install (much moreso than in the Powerbook, which wasn't hard!) They have been in a few weeks and the machine is doing great. What's more, Small Dog have been so helpul with all my questions that I am not worried--if anything ever goes wrong, I will call. A ten-year warranty sounds good to me (what will iMacs look like in 2016, anyway?!?) Thanks Smalldog!
