    It’s kinda funny, you say you need more space, so your getting a 250 GB hard drive. Man, just 3 years ago, and so much has changed. Now 320GB is barely enough.

    Thanks a lot for your comprehensive instruction! I’m just in the midst of recuperating all the data I can from my next-to-dead drive, and your video will make the next step much easier. Thank you!

    Hi – excellent breakdown. However on opening my 20″ , 2006 intel imac , I appear to have a totally different layout – extra cable attached to lcd, and no lever to remove existing drive. Any advice or have you come across this before. Thanks.

    I love the web. Some kid in Scotland (OK, maybe just boring old England) does the dirty works and spreads the wisdom for the rest of us schlubs.

    Thanks for a very thorough DIYVM!

    will use this video for reference. I’m going to take out the old 160GB HDD to put in a 500GB HD. Built PC’s in the past but never taken apart my iMac. A but nervous though.

    I just need to get the Torx bit set and the rubber cement for the temp sensor for the HDD.

    Got my iMac maxed out and I like how portals works perfectly. 3,4ghz core i7 16gb ddr3 2gig radeon hd. Works very well but price was a little steep….

    I’ve ordered up the exact same mac, only with 2GB of video memory. Will the extra 1GB make a noticeable difference in gaming? (I play games like CoD4 and Half Life 2)

    @h4x0y They are bad for gaming because for gaming you want the state of the art performance, which makes Mac a bad choice for the high prices. But as you say, if you can afford a good Mac they do run games well. (aside from upgradeability they’re good for gaems)
