    Ok, after reviewing BTO options on the new iMac line.

    I noticed SSD + Serial ATA drive.
    I wonder what changes Apple made inside the to accommodate this.

    They are using the same display/case as only the guts of each machine has changed.

    Does anyone think this upgrade is possible in last years model iMacs?

    there will be nowhere on the MoBo to connect the second drive on 2009 iMacs! (except the superdrive SATA!)

    Yeah I'd like to know, I want to order a 27" iMac almost maxed without the SSD because I have my own! I'd like to have a Apple Service Provider build it in! :O

    That would be a waste of money, I can't sell it for new price and the one apple sells I will have to pay 350 euro's extra just for the SSD (this includes the difference when building mine in!) That's a little too much...
