RAM easily on the 27" models. (iMac, not iMac Pro).
Disk needs a very invasive approach requiring that you buy a seal set
(from, eg, iFixIt) before doing. 1 hour in and out, I'd guess. Skill
set, medium. On older iMacs (2007) about 30 minutes, pretty easy - just
iMac Pro needs a "teardown" to get at the memory and SSD (Which appears
to be in a RAID configuration). The iMac Pro base model is 32 GB which
is pretty good.
