    I guess all that I can say to that is that anything worth doing (and cloning your hard drive and then re-cloning back takes some time and effort) is worth doing right.

    Returning to the original post, can I give a hearty recommendation for MacBank. My old iMac 24" finally died on my return from a Christmas break and I needed something urgently which was compatible with all my existing hard drives etc. I ordered a 27" from MacBank late on New Years Day and it was delivered early morning on Jan 3rd. It was packed extremely well (even more substantial than Apple packing), it looks immaculate and it's hard to believe it's a 2011 model. I was able to order without keyboard or mouse so that kept the cost down. Restoring from my TM backup was a doddle. I didn't even have to tell the new iMac anything to do with my network... it just worked. By the end of the day I was up and running as if nothing had happened. I'm a very happy bunny!
    Experience teaches you to recognise a mistake when you make it again.

    Thanks for posting your experience Sawday, and that's the way things are supposed to work but don't get posted often enough when they do.

    And welcome to the world of using a 2011 27" iMac and I certainly enjoy using my mid-2011 model.
