I would like to change the hard drive in my iMac intel core Duo (early 2006) and I am wandering if there are some limitation I should be aware of.


First, I bought a HD Seagate Momentus Hybrid 750 Go, to find out that the drive was 2.5 inches and the Drive in the iMac is 3.5 inches.


Considering this, I have decided to buy a 3.5 inches drive but before, I'd like to know if, this time, it will fit in the computer.


This is the drive I'm willing to buy.



Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB «SATA-3» 64MB Cache 3.5" Hard Disk Drive ST2000DL003


Anyone can help and answer?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), iMac Intel 2.0GHz Core Duo
