    Hi All,

    In April 2008, I bought a 24" Imac (2.8GHZ INTEL CORE 2 EXTREME) with a 320gb HDD. I now desperatley need to replace the 320GB with something bigger.

    I have been looking at buying a Western Digital Caviar Black

    Can anybody give me a definitive answer of whether this will work. I have read many threads and some say it will and others say that it will not.

    Thanks :)

    iMacs use 3.5" SATA drives so yes, it will work.
