    I bought one with a 500GB drive when I bought my iMac last year. And now I'm thinking about sticking a 2TB drive in it (taking it to an authorized place if they can't do it at the Apple Store). Will it hold a 2TB or 3TB drive?

    2TB definitely works. I have one in my 2009 24 and 2010 27.

    Cheers,

    Did you do it yourself? Is it hard to do?

    The 24" wasn't too bad. Just take it slow. The 27" I read so many people breaking stuff I paid an Apple authorized service ctr $85.

    Cheers,

    Ya, that's what I'm going to do. Not going to chance it.
