If it's more than the Hard disk that is broken I will still have a new 500 Gb hard drive installed in the imac at cost, and the apple service people can do there thing to get it up and running.
I can't imagine that it's any worse that replacing the hard drive on a pre-unibody intel macbook pro -- which I've done 3 or 4 times, but definitely find some good instructions and take your time.

For audio work the monitor isn't that critical. For photo the imac if it works for now is okay..
And if you want non-glare monitors, you have to go 3rd party.... (ugh).
