I'm looking seriously at buying the new version and before I do, does anyone know if the ram is still upgradable? If so I'll buy one with minimum ram and add my own.

yes, the 27" iMacs are user upgradeable. I upgraded mine a couple weeks ago.

Yes also doable with the new 27 retina iMac. I bought 16GB RAM so I do have 24GB RAM now.

Definitely go with the lowest RAM from Apple and upgrade yourself, as everyone has said. The one thing you should splurge on from Apple, if you can afford to, is a fusion HD or an SSD. The hard drive in the 27" iMac is a huge PITA to swap out yourself, although it can be done.
