Not considering the 2012 iMac because the 21.5" has user-inaccessible RAM, not to mention 5400rpm HD. I am guessing upgrading from 8 to 16GB will cost $100-200 at Apple. I just ordered 2x8GB for $50 shipped.

I hadn't realised they gone down to a 5400rpm disk as standard - disappointing.

The only drive options on the 2012 version of the 21.5" iMac are a "1 TB (5400 rpm) hard drive" and a "1 TB Fusion Drive" (unspecified RPM).  The 27" iMac starts with a 7200 rpm drive and can be configured with a 3 TB one (unspecified RPM).

This, and the emphasis that Apple placed on the thinness of the machines, have led to speculation that the 21.5" machine no longer has room for a 3.5" desktop hard drive inside, and that it is now using a 2.5" notebook hard drive  If that is the case, the choice may have been between a 1 TB (5400 rpm) hard drive and a 750 GB (7200 rpm) one.
