Apparently not from all the replies I've read elsewhere.

I'm under the impression the video memory is on board the ATI chip.

Well I would not say apple sucks but I do agree that it is kind of a pain to not be able to later upgrade certain parts at a later date.

Apple sucks? Why, because they didn't consult you prior to developing a product that seems to please most of its users? There is a PowerMac available. You can purchase the iMac with 256MB. If you need 256MB then just by what you need to begin with. If you need the flexability to upgrade internal components as you go. Then we're back to the PowerMac.
