I need a new external hard drive for my :

  Model Name:    iMac

  Model Identifier:    iMac8,1

  Processor Name:    Intel Core 2 Duo

  Processor Speed:    3.06 GHz

  Number Of Processors:    1

  Total Number Of Cores:    2

  L2 Cache:    6 MB

  Memory:    4 GB

  Bus Speed:    1.07 GHz

  Boot ROM Version:    IM81.00C1.B00

  SMC Version (system):    1.30f1

  Serial Number (system):    YD8520CD0N4

  Hardware UUID:    073B29AD-6FFB-5E64-A52C-BF19A054F363

I do not have Thunderbolt on this and when I look up the specs for USB I get

USB Bus:


  Host Controller Location:    Built-in USB

  Host Controller Driver:    AppleUSBUHCI

  PCI Device ID:    0x2835

  PCI Revision ID:    0x0004

  PCI Vendor ID:    0x8086

  Bus Number:    0x3a


Don't know if this is USB 3.0 or USB 2.0

All the new drives seem to use either Thunderbolt or USB 3.0
