I know this subject had been beaten to death, but im about to buy in a couple days here, and want to be sure of my decision. I can order with student discount a dual 2.3 with ATI 9650 and airport + BT for $2433 OR I can get the dual 2.0 with same specs and upgrade the HD to 250 GB for $2001. The only thing that turns me away is the number of RAM slots. I don't really care about the pci-x slots either. ( I think that is the only difference besides the fsb?) I am a graphic designer , so I use a lot of image intense programs, but I have never had a computer with over 1.5 gb of ram anyway, so I am not even sure if I will ever use the extra 4 slots. If I get the cheaper 2.0, I have money left for a that dell 20" wide monitor. What would you do in my situation?
