    Assuming that Jobs does not announce anything to do with a PB15 update tomorrow (Monday), I'll be taking the plunge and ording a PB15 with the upgraded VRAM, 5400 RPM HD, single SODIMM (and popping another 512MB of Crucial in later), 1.5GHz, etc. I was thinking of getting the cheaper PB15 without the larger VRAM, but as I age in life, I am often bitten by the "you shoulda just bought the "good" one to begin with" dilemma (sp?), so this time, I'm going to blow the extra $200 and get the faster/larger memory machine just to be safe (I think... :rolleyes: )

    I'll still be keeping my main Winbloze machine for gaming/etc., but I do look forward to having a nicely designed, Unix-based laptop after having the heavy, hot, Dell cheapie Inspiron.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone on this site for answering my questions and offering input. Hopefully, the (OUCH!) $2400 is well-spent ;)

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I already ordered a Screensavrz tonight, so with $20 on the line already, there's no turning back, right? :D

    Best item in the whole package. I should've bought a few more at the MacWorld last time. Discount, no tax, no shipping.
