Now You Can Install a Second Hard Drive in Your Mid-2011 iMac

By Adrian Covert on at

Did you know iFixit was good for something other than posting galleries of new gadgets they've torn apart? Well they are, and their latest good deed involves devising a kit so that you can install a second hard drive in your mid-2011 iMac.

When iFixit tore down the iMac after the last refresh, they found mounting points which were completely unused. So they built a kit that lets you place an additional hard drive in that spot. For $70 (£45), each kit comes with the necessary SATA cables, mounting tape, suction cups (for removing the screen), a driver kit, and a spudger. International postage is just $34 (£22), too.

iFixit recommends adding a smaller, cheaper SSD and using that as your boot drive while using your HDD for media files and things of the like. Hard to go against that advice. [iFixit]
