    On my white iMac (Late 2006, 20" C2D 2.16ghz) I've almost filled the puny standard 250MB HD and am planning to have an authorized repair shop replace the drive. (They quoted me $30 plus the cost of the drive -- is that a good price?)

    Question: what drive should I put in there? I'm planning to go with a 1TB/7200 RPM drive, but can I or should I go bigger? Faster? Which brands to use, or to avoid? Any suggestions?

    3TB is the biggest one at the moment. Any 3.5" SATA drive will work. I've always preferred Western Digital but other brands are fine too
