I have the 1TB it came with and want to add a 1.5 or 2TB
thanks for your help
Ok...one place to start as a new Macintosh computer person is...it's not a "MAC"...it's a "Mac".
As far as your hard drive question...I wasn't quite sure if you were asking about replacing the internal HD in your iMac...or if you wanted to install a 2nd internal HD?
If you were talking about installing a 2nd internal HD...can't do it. The newest iMacs can only have one "traditional" internal HD (but it is possible to install a 2nd SSD drive...but it's really more of a "hack"...and not really recommended). If you want or need a 2nd HD...it would be best if it was an external drive. You can replace your iMac's internal HD with a larger model...but replacing an internal HD on your iMac is not very easy.
