    Your iMac has USB2 ports. It does not have USB3 nor thunderbolt. If you purchase this product even though I believe its a great product you'd be wasting your money. You'll never achieve realistic performance out of it. Your best choice is to purchase a firewire 800 product. In todays world firewire 800 is too darn slow.
    Bottom line buy a guad core iMac and get in the modern world or be satisfied with what you currently use.

  • Should be, but you do not list your operating system. Box says compatible with OS X 10.5 (intel only) or higher.

    2010 MacBook Pro, 2.53 GHz, Core i5, RAM 4 GB. OS 10.9.1
    No Thunderbolt connection. Comes with Thunberbolt cable and USB 2.0 or 3.0 to USB 3.0 cable. I'm using USB 2.0. Before I replace or retire the LaCie, I'll be Thunderbolt equipped, so I bought it now.
