Change of hard drive at Apple Service center

It seems that it is almost impossible to replace the hard drive in the new iMac but if the hard drive should break I doubt that I would get a completely new computer from Apple or? Therefore it must be possible to also change the drive at a service center or?

The swap is not a question of possibility. You certainly can replace a lot of components inside the machine once the display assembly is out of the way. The only problem is that the display is held in by double-sided foam tape, which much be replaced. In the past, Apple has used hard drives with proprietary firmware. Chances are high that this is still the case, though we haven't looked into it.
