    My imac has become so slow it is unbearable. It has new memory and fresh install of lion and is still really slow. The only other thing i can think of at this point is a HD issue. I have done a hardware test but it said everything is fine. So what and where should I get a HD from? It has a 160, and I was thinking of maybe bumping up to a 320? Thanks for the help. It is the white, core 2 duo model.

    If you're in the US, is a reputable place to buy electronic equipment. You need a 3.5" SATA hard drive. No brand is better than any other in terms of reliability, so buy the one with the best warranty that fits your budget and size requirements.

    Yes, I am in the US. There are a few different 3.5" sata drives so wanted to make sure I got the correct thing before starting this project. Thanks for the help.
