Dunno for sure about the 4xxx, but the 7xxx use standard SIMMs, and Cisco
has even qualified some manufacturers' parts. Oddly enough, they have
also *disqualified* some parts that you'd think were exactly the same. I
don't know the details there. The sales types obviously don't like to
talk about it, but you really *can* get $12k of 7500 memory for $800. And
they'll even agree that it works, if you talk to the right cisco folks.


Yep, it uses standard SIMMs, I have upgraded many of them.
