Owner felt the machine had become very slow and he was running out of disk space. Machine had a 250 GB Drive and only one GB of Ram.
It was is an EMC 2210. Like many folks I hesitated to take this type of computer apart because of the lack of a visible and easy way to get inside. iFixit's video made all difference. I figured if that pretty young lady to take one of these things apart so could I. It went well and very quickly. I was bit surprised to see the Apple had used what looked like scotch tape to hold wires down and connections together but it works so why knock it. Machine is running just fine and the owner is pleased.
It is not that hard to work on these machines. It does take a bit longer than the typical desktop computer because there are more screws and parts to take off. The machines are well made and thus everything goes back together easily. Go for it and keep that old machine out of the dump.
