After ripping apart an iMAC and testing the hard drive using a S.M.A.R.T. test, the drive was determined to be bad. My question is this: Do i need to buy any specific make/model of hard drive or will any similar drive work?

No need to buy specific Hardrive. You just to need know does your Mainboard could recognized it or not.

Could you tell your iMAC type on your next post?

abauw - the EMC number (if that is what you are asking for) is 2114. I just read the bulletin in this forum about posting specific information, my mistake. Anyhow, If the EMC is not what you are asking about it is a Late 2006 model intel iMac (17", 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, white polycarbonate housing). Is there a good resource that you know of for determining compatibility for this kind of question?
