    Yes, it will seem faster, and have less (probably zero over a long period of time) page outs. That will completely ruin your argument for needing a new iMac :D

    I am typing this on a 2011 27" 3.4 i7 iMac with 20gb of ram and it works fine.

    I have 24 in mine. 2-4GBs and 2-8GBs. Works great!

    had 24 no problem and now at 20 and still no problem. You will be fine.

    No problems running that exact same config right now. I had one of my ram sticks go bad so I put in my original 4 gigabytes.
