If you're referring to the new iMac with the built in iSight, then yes it comes standard with 512Mb RAM in one slot (not accessible) and another slot for additional memory. It's very easy (having just done this myself) to add another memory stick to the second slot.

There's an access panel at the bottom of the screen, two screws and you're done.

There are instructions in the user-guide and also printed on the bottom of the iMac's 'foot'.

No. There's one 'slot' with a built in 512Mb stick and there's one slot that's accessible for up to an additional 2Gb stick.

When you take the memory access cover off, you will see the other 512Mb stick. However it's not easily accessible and may be soldered in place.
