Order with the minimum RAM and then purchase your RAM upgrade from someone like Other World Computing for significantly less. i.e. 32GB for $195, 16 GB for $98. It is very easy to install it yourself.

Second, use the difference to go with the internal fusion drive.

That is exactly what I did.  I also ordered the Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable so I can use my existing external drives when the new iMac arrives.  I ordered on the afternoon of Nov 30 and the estimated wait time was already up to 4 weeks.   Looking forward to the new machine come the first of the year.
