    iMacs since 2006 have become more of a NON-DIY, not as easy as removing the back cover housing on the G5. You can do the upgrade yourself if you are tech savvy and have the right environment/work space with the proper tools. As well, yes apple can upgrade for you but to much$$$$. If you are buying new/refurbed from apple it will be accompanied by warranty and you will need to purchase upgrade prior or have apple upgrade for you, as DIY may void the warranty.

    The new iMac models use special proprietary hard drives designed specifically for Apple. Upgrading the hard drive on an iMac yourself will void your warranty. If you wish to have a larger hard drive, order the upgradeable model of the iMac. The least expensive model is not upgradeable.
