For those of you who have older iMacs and are unimpressed with Apple's latest anorexic offerings I have a suggestion. I've had my 2011 27" iMac upgraded by the folks at OWC to replace the noisy-since-purchase 1TB HD with a 256GB SSD and a 3TB HD. They turned it around in just a bit over a week (I paid for rapid shipping) and it's like I have a whole new machine for about $500. Everything runs faster (no surprise there) and the new HD (a Toshiba) is almost as quiet as the SSD. I'm sure that this sort of behavior by their unruly customer base is probably why the Apple folks would just as soon weld shut every computer they sell. Now, if I can just get a non-buggy OS to go with this beast (still on Mavericks, least-buggy still supported OS X).
