My stock HDD is failing, after 4 years i can't cry too much about it. i am planning to clone the HDD and swap it over for the newer one and figure while im in there i might as well upgrade the hdd size as well. I'm wanting to know what i can upgrade it to. I have heard that 2tb is the maximum but if i can stretch that to a 3tb i will. anyone have any idea? also another option was to swap it for an ssd. is this possible?


please note my applecare expired about 6 months ago so im not too worried about voiding the warranty.



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
