Inside an iMac

My iMac was only 2 years old and the hard drive failed -- very worrying as it was out of warranty. Lucky for me I have a photo friend who is one heck of a Mac expert and he took me to PC world to buy a new hard drive - identical to the one needed to be replaced - then a visit to B&Q to buy a pair of suction hand rails for taking the screen off the iMac. The hard drive is accessed via the front of the iMAc as the back does not open. THe whole procedure took about 3 hours. Fortunately I had backed up on Time Machine so the whole lot went back on again - including all the software which is a massive bonus. Thanks Rob!
