I have a 17 inch iMac with intel Core Duo with 80GB hard drive. The screen is damaged because of vertical lines and i am replacing it myself and i thought it would be a good idea to upgrade the hard drive while i am at it.


Am i correct in assuming that the hard drive is a SATA 2.5" laptop drive ?


I found a cheap Hitachi 200GB 2.5 inch 3 gb/sec 5400 RPM, 8MB Cache, 12MS SATA II drive. Is this suitable ?


Will any 2.5 inch SATA drive, be it SATA, SATA II, SATA III etc. work fine ?
