Hi! I recently got my hands on an old IMac when my girlfriend's parents bought a new Dell. I've got an old P3 running Mandrake just for fun, and I was wondering if anyone knew if the memory (RAM) from Macs was compatible with PC's? I've heard that Mac's operate on 7 bits (without parity?). Is this true, and if so, does this affect the ram? Also (hehe) could the hard drive be swapped out too? I don't have much use for the IMac, but I could use the parts. Thanks to anyone who knows more than I do (so... everyone? ;-)
Although iMac uses SDRAM similar to those found in PC, they are not compatible. As for hard drive, iMac uses Ultra-ATA interface too, but not sure if it will work in your PC. You can try the hard drive but not the memory.
