The usual asshat reply from nospam.   People don't "swap parts all day 
long".  They do it when needed from time to time.

When a drive is failing, failed or not large enough it is trivial to 
remove and replace.  About 10 minutes with most desktops.

On a current iMac it can easily take an hour or more.  Tedious.  And no 
reason to make it so difficult other than the Apple aesthetic.
