If you have the 1st or 2nd rev g5 imac then swapping the HD is easy. Just pop off the back cover and there is the HD. Apple has guides on swapping memory etc on those, so you can see how easy it is to get inside.

Right on cheers:

Now - is there a recommended hard drive to replace my 80g
i.e. - can I go 750Gb with good results or 320 - 500 GB
are there better manufacturers - Seagate , Hitachi etc....?

cheers:
