Installing RAM is a two-minute job on the iMac. I added two 8 GB sticks in my 2011 21.5-inch iMac and have had no problems. I am flat amazed how fast entry-level computers are these days.

Mucking around with the internal hard drive is another matter. Other World Computing has some excellent videos on doing this.

I used to work tech support at Apple and went through a lot of training on tearing apart, diagnosing and repairing computers, monitors and laser printers. After watching the OWC install video I decided not to mess with the internal HD myself. I installed their Data Doubler in my 2009 MacBook Pro, but breaking into the iMac is a whole 'nother level of difficulty. YMMV.
