    Should I get the 240 G upgrade kit ($148) or the 480 G ($240) one? I've used less than 100 gigabytes on my current HD, so storage isn't a priority. I wonder though, does an SSD need free space to...

    The internal one. Spin down? Yes. It used to properly spin down in Sleep Mode like it's supposed to. There's no way it's normal or good for the disc to go into a start - stop cycle endlessly.

    Disk won't sleep in Sleep Mode

    I have a mid '11-build 21" iMac that has been essentially flawless (discounting user error) up to now. Updates are current (ignore profile specs). There is at least 400 GBs of space available on...

    Mid '11, with Yosemite. No Apple TV. I'm hoping that with my smart TV I could bypass buying it. Not looking to watch TV shows, just my own material.

    Imac>smart TV

    Just wondering if it's possible to connect an iMac to a smart TV. I know I can't mirror the web. What I want to do is view, for example, my pics and vids from my iMac for viewing on the TV.

    Are you sure? Wasn't that a big issue with Yosemite when it first came out? If you are saying it was solved by the .3 update, then I see your point.
