    Hey guys,
    I have been a mac owner for all of 10 days now :)
    I have the 27.5 Imac with the i7 processor, 8GB DDR3 SDRAM and a whole bunch of other things that I'm not sure on what they all do. I have 1tb HDD. Is it possible to upgrade to 2tb if i need to down the road?

    Sure. I would probably go with an external RAID.

    Internal drive wise I would think about an SSD for your apps and OS.

    Cheers

    Good luck finding a 2TB SSD, haha! There aren't any that large and it would literarily cost you like 15 grand.

    A really good guide for replacing the hard drive was done by MacWorld, you can see it here.

    I would not install a larger hard drive internally, I would have external hard drives for archival storage and one for time machine.
