Hard Drive Replacement - please help!
After reading and reading all of the great information here. I am still a little confused.
I have a 24" iMac 2008 - 2.4ghz with a bad HD. It's been dead for quite sometime, sitting in a room and I thought I'd like to bring it back to life, the poor thing.
I want the replacement to also be an upgrade. From what I understand, I could place a hybrid sshd into it such as this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seagate-Solid-St...
But not an SSD, is that right? Also, I still have my original osx CD's when I purchased it... and I don't even know what it was running on... it was BEFORE snow leopard lol. Should I use those or follow the instructions I found here? THanks.
Also, I'd like to upgrade the ram. Can someone point me into the right direction on how to do that. And if there is any other recommendations on cleaning/upgrading that I could use as I am sure some other components are dusty and such.
I am a web developer, but am rather clueless on the guts of a computer itself. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!
