    Hey guys,

    I'm thinking of buying this iMac from the Australian refurbished store:
    http://store.apple.com/au/product/FC511X/A?mco=MTkwMzU2MjI

    Specs -
    Originally released July 2010
    27-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
    4GB memory
    1TB hard drive
    8x SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
    ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics with 1GB memory
    Built-in iSight camera

    Is the current iMac a big leap from this one?
    Am I able to replace the hard drive with an SSD? Would this involve taking out the glass display? Or is the store able to replace this with a 3rd party hard drive of your choice?

    Any thoughts are much appreciated.

    cheers,
    Peter

    What are you going to do with it? The new one is obviously faster but whether it's worth the extra is another question. There is space for SSD but it involved taking off the glass.
