How-To: Now’s the right time to swap your old iMac’s hard drive for a fast new SSD

Prices are coming down on SSD’s and even on the name brand ones. I noticed just today Samsung drives are getting cheaper. A 512GB EVO is ~$200 now with the 1TB EVO for just over $414. Not bad at all. But not all Macs are as friendly and upgradeable the old G4 and G5 Mac towers from years ago. Now instead you’ve got to use suction cups and gingerly pull out a bare 27″ LCD screen on the iMac. But thanks to the DIY spirit 9to5Mac has shared the steps to do a hard drive swap. Power to the people, we can do this!
