Replace hdd with ssd - questions I still can't find answer to
I'm going to buy the new iMac 27''. I'd like to buy it with just 1TB hdd and then replace it with an SSD. Here is the SSD I chose: http://goo.gl/I4VF4
I read many threads around here and on other sites and honestly I found different answers to the question "can I upgrade my iMac with an SSD?".
Actually, I know it theoretically possible, but I still can't figure out all the issues I could find doing the upgrade.
I asked a trusted AASP near my hometown and they told me they don't know if it's possible to do it with a third-party SSD. Anyway, they're available to do it for me if I want.
So I'm kindly asking you if you could give me an answer to the doubts I still have on the subject:
- There will be any warranty issue after the upgrade?
- There will be any "FAN issue" after the upgrade? (I know it was not possible to replace the hdd in the mid-2011 iMacs with a third-party one because there was a sensor which made the fan go crazy with a non-original hdd installed)
- Is the SSD I linked earlier in this post compatible and correct for the replacement in an iMac?
- If it's safer to use an original Apple SSD, where can I buy it (256GB or 512GB)? Which brand and model is an "original Apple SSD"? What about the performance?
Thank you very much for your attention.
Is this a good question?
