    imac 20" harddrive
    I have managed to get into and remove the hard drive from my late 2006 imac 20". i have contacted a few vendors who are saying i can't purchase a drive but they will happily fit it - for upwards of 240.

    Is there somewhere in the uK i can just buy a 500/1tB drive ? What sort of price should I pay. Is there an issue over the heat sensor I need to look out for?

    Have you actually checked out the hard drive retailers on Here is one to get you started. Your main problem will be getting a SATA drive if the iMac is SATA and not SATA !!.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
