Replace hard drive or buy new?

I have a 2017 27 inch iMac and the hard drive needs to be replaced. The repair shop said they could upgrade to an SSD drive for $500 total. The trade in value is $1100. Would you upgrade or just trade in and buy a new one?

What is the size of your current drive and is it a Fusion Drive setup?

What are you looking for space the same or more?


Hi Dan,

This was the configuration that I got:

4.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.2GHz

• 8GB 1867MHz DDR3 SDRAM - two 4GB —I upgraded it myself to 32 GB

• 3TB Fusion Drive

• AMD Radeon R9 M395X with 4GB video memory

The repair shop wants to replace the 3TB HD with a 1TB SSD. I don’t know if it’s worth it to spend around 400-500 for repairs or to trade in my computer at Apple for $1100 credit so I can buy the new iMac. What do you think?

You know you can do this your self if you follow directions to the letter for a lot less!

So here’s the needed part, tools and sundries iMac Intel 27" (Late 2012-2019) SSD Upgrade Bundle $260 USD for a 1TB drive. And here’s the guide iMac 27" 2017 Festplatte tauschen

The hardest part is pulling the display off. Many people use the wrong tools and/or force things. If you follow the guide to the letter you’ll be fine!

I would not do anything with the PCIe blade SSD which is the cache drive to your HDD when you had a Fusion Drive set. Wipe it down and just use it to hold loose files.

that configuration is still very usable. A 1TB SSD will make it seem like a new comouter. They do not cost that much if you install it yourself. About $100. They are not hard to replace as it is all plug-able. But then I am not a MAC person. IMHO, 400-500 is to much to pay.
