As per the title: in the quest to upgrade my Mac LC "mk1" I'm searching for the VRAM SIMM.

The maximum my unit accept is the 512kb stick, so I'm looking for one.:blased:

Throw your offers on my general direction, the cheaper the merrier.:thumbsup:

Does your unit accept two SIMMs? I had an LCIII that did - I pulled the VRAM from that when it died. Still have it: 2x256KB 68-pin SIMMs = 512KB. If you want 'em, they're yours for the cost of shipping.

Mine is the first LC020, so it only have a single VRAM clip.

Thanks for you kind offer, good sir!

The SIMM costs a fiver, shipping cost is US50.00!!!! No way I'll pay that amount for just a SIMM postage.

I have two from an Apple Centris 650, not sure if these will work?

As far as I know, they are the same (68 pin SIMM, 256kb in original LC020, 2x 256kb or 2x 512kb in Centris).
