    No. This hard drive is only for use in a Mac Server, which has the model name Xserve.

    Hard drives for iMacs are also 3.5" SATA drives like this one, but without all the extra hardware that makes them Xserve compatible.

    By the way, replacing a hard drive in an iMac is recommended to only be performed by someone who really knows what they are doing and if still under warranty then only by Apple.
