Just replaced my HD on my IMac to a WD 2TB green drive. Was allot easier then I thought it would be! I can tell you why Mac are more money, they are built solid!! I built my own PC's over the years, but never was in side a Mac before, can tell you it is like a fine sports car compared to a tin can! I was amazed to see AMD boards with the Intel processor!

Anyone else wanting to try, I followed this site:

I watched a video on YouTube of a guy swapping out a part and this thing was a nightmare. It did look like a watch inside though. I have a iMac and love it but all I've ever done was replaced the memory.

Just did the same thing on my wife's and yes, it was pretty easy, and yes, it's built pretty solid.

HD's are so damn cheap these days!! Got 2TB for under $100. Crazy.
I was going to go SSD but still a bit pricy on those.
