You can add a drive into the 27" model, OWC does this service. The 21.5" has no room inside. Here's how to add eSATA ports: http://www.xlr8yourmac.com/systems/imac_...

OWC has now added upgrade options for the 21.5": http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/turnkey/i...

This in fact' 'is'' possible.

There are 3 SATA Data Connections on the motherboard. See image here.

There are also 3 Distinct Power connections on the motherboard shown in the image.

In order to retrofit a SSD into the new 2011 21.5" iMacs, You'll need the following parts:

539-1295 (SSD DATA)

539-1296 (SSD POWER)

And the brackets, which part numbers have not been identified for yet.

See image here for an idea of the fit.
