    iMac mid 2011 max RAM
    I have a 27" iMac Mid 2011, 3.4Ghz Core i7.

    What is the maximum RAM for this. I believe Apple recommends 16Gb (4x4GB), but I have seen websites stating and selling 32GB, is this correct/compatible (4x8GB).

    Is this true, can anyone confirm this from experience please?

    From Mactracker:

    Maximum Memory 32 GB (Actual) 16 GB (Apple)
    Memory Slots 4 - 204-pin PC3-10600 (1333 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM

    Have fun and buy your memory from either Mac Sales or Crucial.

    20GB will be just fine. It will handle everything including Photoshop etc with ease.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
