    intel imac - can I use any hard drive?

    My intel imac says I have a maxtor 6l250m0 drive.

    I really need more storage space! Can I just bung any sata drive in? I'm looking at 500 and 750 gig drives.

    Taking it apart is not for the faint of heart though. I have a service guide and its quite complicated. I sent a broken one away for repair instead :P

    Yeh good luck changing the hard drive those iMacs are tightly packed. You can use almost any drive as long as its sata of course
