with all the parts enclosed behind the monitor, if someone were to purchase the unit and later in time wanted to upgrade, the video card and/or the hard drive, is it as easy to upgrade -or- is it as complicated as a laptop unit ?

In theory the CPU, harddrive, and optical drive can be upgraded. In reality, Apple makes you jump through a lot of hoops to do so.

The good people from MacFan magazine in Japan have upgraded an iMac Core Duo 1,83 GHz to 2GHz with a normal off-the-shelf T2500 Yonah from a PC shop. So the CPU is in fact upgradeable. For graphics though you're stuck with whats onboard.
