So ppl, since last night i read this article i searched, searched and searched.
Answer is following:
iMac's are upgradeable. But with limited number of drives (not all are compatible) and with app from enthusiast programmer. App checks SMART data from HDD and adjust fan speed.
Anyway - bu-fu-chu on you, who decided to make iMac's like this. I live more than 300km from the nearest apple store (and don't even know if it is a service centre), imagine HDD fails. Am i f/b-ucked, cause i have to wait no one knows how long for a replacement? I'm enthusiast and can do any repairs myself, so don't take those possibilities from people who can do such. "Joe-user" will go to apple store anyway...PRAETORIANNI NONNUMQUAM IN PROELIO NUMQUAM IN BELLO SUPERANTUR

Ok...lrt's hope this idea doesn't migrate to the MacBook or MacBook Pro lines. I've always wanted n iMac, but I won't be purchasing one now. It's not too much to keep the HD and RAM user upgradable. Ridiculous to take that away...

Here is what i never understand about some of theses forums.
Just because this is a forum about Apple, does not mean we have to LOVE every single thing about Apple or everyone of their products. Some of you take negative comments about Apple personally. Get over it. People can still not like an Apple product or prefer another computer besides Apple.
I own iphones because as of now its the best phone for me. But as far as Apple goes, lets just say I'm not crazy about them. I own PC's and that's all I will ever own. Like most here I like to have the ability to change/upgrade whatever parts I want when I want. Does that mean I shouldn't be on this site or give my opinion?
My GF has always had Macs. I just bought her the new iMac 27". Spent $2500 in Apple store last weekend. What a F'd up store that is by the way. Now your going to tell me I cant change out the hard drive if i need/want to? But because this is an Apple site I should still shut my mouth and praise them? Ya gotta be kidding me...some people are like zombies and have a one track mind.

Let's see, since when did steve jobs need any of u to defend him? Last I checked he doesn't know any of u and he makes hella cash. Don't know if he's greedy or not but the word egotistical control freak comes to mind. Basically it boils down to him thinking we're all to stupid to be messing around with his product. It's a great product but kinda condescending when u pay all that money for something to be told what u can't do with it. If u want apple then your gonna have to toe the line. PC guys can jump the fence and go crazy. It's your choice. Just remember, some people do better with having things shoved down there throat. If your willing to give up on certain freedoms when it comes to your computing then apple is ur man, if not just go do your thing your way on a pc. Choice people薮が多い額

Look at Gates. He gets paid huge sums, and has stock. Then to get people to like him, he does big public stunts where he gives most of it away.
Also, why the hell does everyone think that SJ runs everything inside apple? People, he's not superman.

But then again...why did Apple switch screws on the iPhone 4? Did it hold it together any better?

1) Two words: "MS Office". Alas I need it, and it does not go well with wine.
2) intel different than g5: yep, quite so, for some of the reasons above. G5 gives substantially less flexibility than intel (i.e., you can run natively windoze, most linux distributions, and osx), I have run linux for g5 (at some point I even had a beowulf cluster of 20 g5's running linux), but there weren't too many varieties and not a lot of precompiled software (sorry, I do not have time to compile everything from scratch, perhaps I should have hired an uber genious like you to run my systems).
Before you actually post and call somebody clueless, get a clue yourself.
Because you really believe that his $1 salary is his only income... Sure, I also have a bridge to sell you if you are interested.
BTW: in case some other clueless person comes along: I currently have 1 iphone (jailbroken and unlocked), 1 ipod touch (jailbroken), 1 mac pro (8 cores), 2 imacs (intel, 1 white, 1 al), 1 ipad 2 (att 3G, 64G, arriving next week, can't wait to jailbreak it).

I looked at used Macs all night. They're usually 70% of the cost of a new one to get a mystery machine with no warranty. Powermax is trying to sell G5 towers with 1 Gb of RAM, no install disks, and only 10.5 loaded for $1200! Eff that ess!
I'm gonna have to think long and hard on this one, because I'm NOT planning on buying a new comp for a few years after this one.iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

Had seriously considered moving back to Apple. This news quashed that idea. Left Apple back in the 90's. Couldn't muster paying 2x for an stock drive with special Apple restrictions. I won't play their stupid games. My $$$, my choice!
