    I saw the keynote on my now old macbook pro 2009; and I want to replace my apple computing devices (currently the 2009 MBP and a 16 gig iPad 2) with an iMac 27 for heavy lifting and an iPad Pro 10.5 for my on the go tasks. On that setup I can eventually afford the 1999.99 version of the iMac; my questions are:

    Is the ram user replaceable? (so that I can buy more down the line instead of apple) and is the Radeon Pro 575 good enough of a graphics card, or should I just save up more and get the way more expensive (where I live) iMac that comes equiped with the 580?

    Lastly, just how much flash storage comes in the 1tb fusion drive?

    21" Ram is soldered to MB
    27" has 4 DIMM Slots.
    1T Fusion 64g SSD
    2-3T Fusion 128g SSD
    575 is the sweet spot IMO

    From the "how much storage is right for you" popup: "The 1TB Fusion Drive pairs a 1TB hard drive with 32GB of fast SSD... ...The 2TB and 3TB Fusion Drives pair a larger hard drive with 128GB of fast SSD storage"
