    With the release of the new PowerMac's, I've decided to upgrade from my Mac mini. I'm thinking of getting the 2.0GHz with 1GB RAM. Also I want to add another interal HD, but will this void my Applecare? What brand of internal HD comes with the PowerMac? What do you guys think is the best internal HD?

    No... adding a hard drive is a user installable upgrade. It's extremely easy too. My PM came with a Maxtor HD. I've seen people say theirs has come with a Seagate HD.

    I'm a fan of Seagate...

    BTW the HDs in the PM are SATA drives rather than IDE.

    Mine has a Seagate, which makes me happy, because 3 of my friends work 4 miles from here at Seagate doing R&D / Testing on new Seagate hard drives in their Shakopee Minnesota location :)
