    I'm interested what 500gb hard drive they use in the 20" iMac?

    Many thanks all

    I think I saw one with a Western Digital drive but I could be making this up. If it's anything like the RAM, Apple will choose the brand on their prices at the time of manufacture. In other words, they shop around a bit to get the best deal... I think. :)

    Do you mean manufacturer wise? In that case, I believe that Apple (as do most PC manufactureres) use a plethora of different HDD venders (e.g., Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, etc...). In other words, the type (brand) of HDD in an iMac will normally vary from iMac to iMac. :)


    Does this answer your question squirrel? :)

    I think you're right, assuming they have the same manufacturer for the 250GB drive which is a Western Digital according to the 20'' iMac.

    I've had two (first one failed) 500GB drives in my 20" iMac and they've both been Hitachi. Model number is: HDS725050KLA360:)
