    Yeah another SSD topic from me.

    1. Is it easy to add an SSD to an iMac? (after viewing the OWC videos again I agree with everyone who replied to my previous topic)

    I wouldn't go for it yet seeing the 2 TB vs. 256 GB comparison but I wanted an opinion or two.

    2. I was very impressed with the Core i7 processor being added finally but I noticed the graphics card is still the ATI Radeon 4850. Is this because of heat?

    Are SSDs available in 3.5" HDD cases? I thought they only came in 2.5", which would work in laptops. These iMacs must have 3.5" drive hookups, per the specs.

    There are some 3.5" but they are slower and and costs more. Everything you need is SATA 3.5" to SATA 2.5" converter.
