    hey guys. ive been trying to Google for this without much luck. maybe im not using the right keywords.
    im trying to find out the details on the hardware for the iMacs and Macbooks. what i specifically want to know is what motherboard and hard drive brands they use.
    i have heard that Macs use ASUS motherboards, but i have yet to find proof of this.

    your help is much appreciated! Thanks!

    They use seagate and hitachi drives in the notebooks, toshiba for the 200gb unless something's changed recently. I assume the iMacs use the same as the Mac Pros, which are usually western digital or seagate drives with 8mb cache, and 16mb cache on the 750gb drives. Though I'm sure I've seen threads on forums with people claiming they have maxtor drives, but it seems to me most people tend to get WD or Seagate.
