    HDD replacement under UK consumer law

    Hi I've got a 27-inch late 2013 iMac with 3TB Fusion Drive, and long story short, the HDD part of the drive has failed and hence needs replacing (I've attached a much longer explanation of how I got to this point at the end for those that are interested).
