    Apple, EveryMac, and Other World Computing say: 16 GiB

    However, Wikipedia says: 32 GiB

    Note that EveryMac and Other World Computing agree that the 2011 21.5" iMac can handle 32 GiB, twice as much as what Apple claims. Also, note that the 2010 model internals are nearly identical to those of the 2011 models.

    I'd listen to apple and owc before wikipedia dude. Check their source.

    I have. Their source is MacRumors, and the 21.5" iMac in question was a 2009 model.

    Agreed. I'd listen to the tech guys over Wikipedia.

    I've ordered some parts, so we'll find out for certain in a few days.

    You've not told us what model which does not help. But if everymac states 32 the it's 32.
