After owning an iMac for 5-6 years, the hard drive had filled up, and the times required to boot and open applications were very slow.
Ordered up the parts for RAM and hard drive upgrades from iFixit and followed the online instructions, referring back to the video guides as necessary. This took me essentially a full working day -- not the replacement of the physical parts, but the restoration of the software/the desktop. The steps involved in the latter were not intuitive and took lots of poking around the Internet to find what I needed. Nonetheless, I got there in the end.
As you go through any procedure in iFixit, follow instructions closely, improvise where you feel you can get away with it, and use Google frequently as you restore your system after replacing physical components.

Battery was dying, computer was slow. Don't have the money to get a new one just now.
Easy with the guides, very quick.
The battery is not exactly the same color of white plastic as my computer, but it's all right, it's an old model A1181.

The original 320GB hard drive completely died after 5 yrs of nearly continuous service. Found the ifixit site with great instructions and the necessary parts.
The parts arrived in a few days and the repair was easy and fast. Has the ufixit guide on my iPad and followed the step by step instructions. Finished in less than one hour. Everything booted up fine and was able to reinstall from my Time Capsule.
Read the entire repair steps first before proceeding to make sure you have everything.

Too many users, not enough memory.
Easy. Did it in-between cooking dinner, one screw and the plate comes off. Insert the memory and it goes back together. 5 minutes start to finish including shutting down and restarting the iMac.
Could have not been easier.
