That's what I was planning on doing... I'm not afraid to tackle the MB, but the iMac is a whole new "hurt locker" ! eek

The $250 did include all the data transfer. They were able to recover my wifes data on the iMac, but they said my MB was totally dead and it would be a chunck of $$ to try to recover any data if they could... I have it backed up via Time Machine, so can do myself.
