ME089LL/A is the newest 27" and you can easily replace the memory yourself. It comes with 8GB, so I assume you're wanting to go to 16GB? This Crucial kit from Amazon for $136 will work for you.

Here are installation instructions from Apple. It is very easy.

That said, why do you think you need more memory? You might not. Start the machine then use it for a while like you normally do then check the memory pressure as described here. If the memory pressure is in the green, you are not likely to benefit from adding memory.

Nah... if that memory pressure is in the green you will not likely see any benefit and are just throwing away money. Plus, that is an expensive memory upgrade. :mad:
