I do not recommend adding a second internal hard drive to your new iMac. The reasons are as follows:

1. It may void your warranty.

2. Gaining access to the inside of your new iMac is a moderately difficult task as the entire front panel display assembly must first be removed. See the details at iFixit: The free repair manual.

3. You may damage delicate internal components. See reason 1. We have already gone through one thread here where that is exactly what happened when the owner attempted to add a SSD.

My advice is to purchase a nice large fast external hard drive such as the "Mercury on the go" series from OWC. These drives are very fast and have firewire capability.
