    according to the article, in order to replace ram, you have to use a pin to open a door in the back, but reading other threads here, people have been saying that it can only be done by opening up the screen on the front.

    which is true or did i misread the other threads?

    i've never had an imac before, but strongly considering getting the 21"

    Both are true.

    That is one of the differences between 27" and 21".

    I'm surprised at their impression of the speakers. The first review that actually praised them. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with the iMac speakers? Are they really that bad?

    Well, I haven't heard the speakers on the new iMac but they sure do suck on my Alu 24" model, having dedicated speakers (for me a 2.1 system) is almost a necessity.

    Look at this as the same as TV's: the thinner the TV the thinner / smaller the speakers need to be, which means they're not as powerful and not good quality, which a sound system is almost a necessity as well (in my case a 5.1 system). I'm assuming this is exactly the same when it comes to the iMac speakers.
