iMac Upgrade

Paul was doing some edgy stuff in a VM when his iMac’s hard drive gave out.
After a few attempts at resuscitation, Paul went and bought a new drive and got some extra RAM while he was there.
I agreed to come over and help him with the install. Paul has good experience but had not cracked a lot of Mac cases. He did his research – finding a video on YouTube that we watched the way a football coach watches an opposing teams tapes (rewind play rewind play rewind play…). We were finally able to (carefully) remove the LCD and get to the drive. Apple couldn’t make this more difficult. With two of us, we were able to eventually get everything accomplished but what a pain in the ass!
Clearly there is a need for easy access to the hard drive for both the owner and the technician. I guess the greed-heads at Apple didn’t get that memo.
