Will you then be able to put 16gb of RAM in it?
You already can put 16gb of ram in it.
Well, will there be more ram slots?
How many ram slots do you think it has?
21.5" doesn't have a quadcore processor. Not enough room to deal with the thermal overload of a beefy quadcore chip.
All iMacs from the last 18 months or so have had four slots for memory. You do the math.
Putting a new processor will not give the iMac more RAM slots.
Sandy Bridge will bring 65W quads at decent clock speeds with very aggressive Turbo. Price should also be reasonable
I guessed it as 4 slots. From the Apple website you can max the ram out at 8. So I guessed it has 4 slots, and they put 2gb in each slot.
Apple offers only 8GB for 21.5" but it supports up to 16GB of RAM. And yes, it has four RAM slots.
That's also the maximum what Lynnfield CPUs and P55 chipset support.
