    Title pretty much sums up the question. I have a late 2011 that I upgraded to 16g of ram. Want to know if I can pull that and put it in the retina iMac?

    I doubt it.
    Check with OWC.
    I just checked and no. But it's about $100 per 8G stick.

    It will run, but at a slower speed. It's not ideal.

    Went with some new sticks from Crucial, works great. Thanks for the response!
