If that's the case, then get as much memory as you can afford when you buy it, as it won't be upgradeable later.

Can anyone with a new iMac confirm or deny the review I read?
The new 21.5" iMacs come by default with 8GB of memory and can only be upgraded to the max 16GB during ordering. The 27" iMac on the other hand comes with 8GB and can be user upgraded to 16GB or 32GB through the panel that has been available in all previous iMacs..
