Can anyone confirm the 2017 27" iMac BTO 16GB & 32 GB RAM configurations. For example, does Apple ship the BTO 16GB option with 2x8GB DIMMs or 4x4GB DIMMs?

One if the big features IMHO of the 27" is that it has user upgradable RAM slot. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of that and get the stock 8GB RAM and then add in your own 16GB or 32 kit. I have the stock 8GB installed + a Corsair 16GB kit. Works fantastic and only cost me a bit over $100. MUCH less than what Apple charges for just 16GB and I have a total of 24GB rather than 16.

Just to add to the post above me. Stock was 2 x 4GB in my otherwise maxed out Late 2015 and still is in the new ones as I read here many times.
