    Hi all, alright first off lemme give u my specs. I have a Imac Intel duo 2ghz, 160gb hardrive, mac os x tiger, 1gb of ram and has i sight. I was trying to upgrade my imac from tiger to leopard using the leopard drop in cd but after countless errors and freezing, I gave up.. When I turn on I get an error message now. I went to go check on the hardrive on disk utitlies and it says that my hardrive is " s.a.t.a : failing" which mean its about to give out or hopefully the reason why im having a lot of trouble now with my imac. I cant even log into my comp anymore...it jus goes to a flashing folder with a question mark on it. It seems that the hardrive is the problem and was wondering if u guys can tell me if either one of these hardrive will be compatiable with my imac.. i think its a 3.5" sata..thanks for the help

    Yes. They are both SATA (Serial ATA). Either one would be fine.
