Just a note: It's perfectly possible to change the HD in a tray-loading imac (i have a 80 gb in my old imac). And you can get burners for it, i believe vodoo made a better graphics card for it too... This is not to say that the tray-loading imac dosen't sux, it's just not as bad as you guys make it (imo).
btw. the slot-loading imac have a 136 HD gb limit, so if you buy a 160 gb drive you will only get the 136 gb...

Slot load iMacs should take up to 1GB of RAM. I suspect 120GB is the limit on hard drives. As mentioned, you can swap the optical drive too. Most notebook drives should fit. If you want to do a CPU swap, you'll have to get a soldeing iron out.
