    I want to buy an imac 27" with 4GB of RAM. I might want to upgrade it later on.
    I wonder how many more RAM steak i could add more.

    I wonder nobody has mentioned it yet, but here are people on this forum who successfully installed DDR3-1333 RAM into their new iMacs, maximum capacity is 16 GB though.

    I think you meant to say "How much RAM can the new iMac take"

    And that would be 16GB.
