    or

    • 256MB DDR333 (256MB built-in)
    • 80GB Ultra ATA drive @ 5400rpm
    • SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW)
    • AirPort Extreme Card
    • Apple Studio Display (17" flat panel) + Apple DVI-to-ADC Adapter
    • Keyboard/Mac OS - U.S. English

    If I go with the 12" and the 17" studio display, I could still use the studio display when I upgrade to a 12" G5 PB later on.....but, that 128mb graphic card in the 15" looks very tempting!

    Any thoughts?
