compatible upgrade hard drive for imac/
Posted on 2013-05-22
The hard drive in my 24" Aluminium Imac (early 2008) , 2.8Ghz has gone kaput, - it was a 500gb, and am looking to replace it with a 1 TB drive.
I'm ok with taking apart and re-assembling, (this will be the second drive replacement), but I have no idea what to look for regarding make and model of the proposed replacement.
I'm in London for a few days at the moment, and have a few options. Go into an Apple shop and pay top dollar for a replacement, which is probably the least troublesome, but most expensive.
Can anyone recommend a drive, make, and model that will suit the bill?
I'm aware that some drive have temperature sensors, and some don't etc.. so all advice is welcome.
Thank you in advance
