What kind of HD do I need for replacement?
I need help and tips on changing my HD in my iMac. My hard drive has been failing since I've been getting slow startups and shutdowns, tried a disk utility repair and did a clean install of the OS and I still get a slow imac and the spinning rainbow a lot.
I just wanted to know if the HD I need to buy is a regular 3.5 SATA 500gb HD for replacement? Does it need to be a SATA 2 or a SATA 3? I don't really know if there's a difference or if I will encounter any compatibility issues if I replace my HD with a SATA 3 since it's the one usually available here in my country(Philippines).
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much!
