I believe your answer is yes. You can upgrade your RAM. It looks like you currently have one 512 MEG module. You can upgrade by adding a 1 GIG module for a total of 1.5 GIGS or replace the existing 512 also and insert 2 - 1GIG modules. Would you look on the bottom of your iMacs stand and give us the exact description so we can direct you to the correct RAM and installation guide.

If I've misunderstood the question and you are talking about data storage, your machine probably came with a 160 or 230 GIG hard dive and you can upgrade to the 2 terabyte drive.


That's only theoretical if we're talking TB, theoretically an intel mac running 10.6 could support up to 2TB of ram, but not practically.

Your mac uses a GUI, although you can access a CLI through the GUI with or by booting into single-user mode.

Short answer: GUI.

All macs have been GUI since GUI was invented (Apple II-1984)

And you can upgrade you mac to 2 TB with this, except I'm guessing you'd be upgrading from 512 GB, not MB, 512MB has not been a hard drive option since either the early 90s or late 80s
