Hi, I have a iMac Mid 2010 model. It has 1TB internal drive, but its kind of slow. So, I would like to attach a SSD drive and let the apps and OS work from the SSD then .


Yesterday I called my local Apple guy and asked him to open the machine .

I already bought a Crucial m4 256GB SSD . But we saw that, there is no extra contact for attaching an additional drive. We took out the super drive , but the contacts dont match with the SSD contacts.


So, whats the best way to do it ?


Do we need to get some extra conversion wire kit to attach somewhere ?


IM tired of Apple limitations.
