OK, here's my situation: Right now, I am thinking of getting a MBP 2.16 GHz with an ACD in the near future. 1) My question is should i get a maxed out MBP 2.16, 100 GB 7200 RPM Drive, Upgrade RAM from crucial, 20" ACD or 2) 2.16 GHz MBP, all stock, 23" ACD I don't really need the extra RPM, and 1 GB RAM is probably fine for me, I will probably upgrade option 2 with leopard, but I don't know if I need the 23 inch display. I will be doing word, web browsing, research, gaming in OS X/XP, and other stuff. I will not be using HD Video that much, and some video/photo editing. I suffer from must-get-highest-end syndrome, btw. I am leaning towards option 2, because I am also getting an external hdd, and 7200 probably won't make a huge difference to me. Thanks! -yankeefan NOTE: I will settle for nothing less than the 2.16 GHz. I know, i probably only need the 1.83, but i hate slowness. part of my NY instincts. All help/advice is appreciated. Advice from owners is also appreciated.
