My Problem

2008 iMac was getting increasingly slow. No problems diagnosed—it was just getting old, taking ages to open applications—and driving me nuts. I was nervous about putting an SSD into my iMac—having to remove the screen, etc.—seemed a bit daunting.

My Fix

Had the whole job done within an hour. So much easier than I expected it to be. (I've put an SSD in a MacBook Pro too which was more tricky by comparison). My iMac is now like brand new. Incredibly fast. I'm really, really pleased.

My Advice

Just follow iFixit's instructions. The photos, the written steps, the feedback from other users......superb help. Thank you iFixit!
