    iMac Hard Drive Replacement: What Works
    I have a failing hard drive that needs replacement and i was wondering what i can replace it with. the current drive is a WD Caviar Blue SATA Hard Drive
    500 GB, SATA 3 Gb/s, 16 MB Cache, 7200 RPM

    If i were to replace this with a 1TB drive, do i have to go with a drive of the same specs i.e. 3 Gb/s, 16 MB Cache, 7200 RPM, or can i replace it with a drive that has a 32 MB Cache.

    Any response is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    computers are very lenient to different hard drives, so you should be fine with whatever you get.
