    Looks like Apple is counting on a few dudes to take off the screen and prove that the 21" model is upgradable.

    That is a Built To Order option, BTO in short. The 21.5" iMac is still not user upgradeable.

    I think what the OP is saying, is that the Apple store sells aftermarket memory for the 21.5" 2012 iMac. The referenced 16GB SODIMM set sells for $400. The BTO 16GB upgrade is $200. So the logic is, if Apple doesn't intend for the 21.5" model to be upgradeable, why do they sell a memory upgrade for that model. However, if you want 16GB you might as well pay only $200 for the BTO optionvs $400.
