    Changing the RAM on an iMac is as simple if not simpler than changing RAM on a MBP.

    Hard drives are more complicated, and require you to take a part most of your Mac. A guide to changing your hard drive can be found here.

    The base iMac comes with a 500GB, but you can upgrade to a 1TB yourself, or if you upgrade the processor/gpu for $300.
