After waiting months to see what the HP Envy 14 Sandybridge refresh would bring... complete disappointment (poor graphics options, no HD screen, etc.), I decided to spend the cash and pulled the trigger on a new MBP 15". I went with the high-end with quad 2.2s in order to get the 6750M GPU, plus student savings jump to $200 off on this model. I considered buying from Amazon or MacMall to avoid taxes, but it is impossible to get a hi-res screen build from Amazon and MacMall completely overcharges for your first upgrade. The 128GB SSD upgrade was only $90 (10% off for students), but I considered keeping the 7200-rpm 500GB drive and doing an after-market switch to the optical bay and putting in a Vertex 3 SSD, but for only $90, I rather avoid that headache and plug in my 320gb western digital passport whenever I need extra space. Overall, I paid $2350 after-taxes and got a free $100 gift card & free upgrade to Lion. It will be a beast of a machine (Quad 2.2s, 6750 GPU, Hi-Res screen, 128 GB SSD). One question I have is since the Apple RAM comes with 2x2GB, when upgrading with third party, are people keeping one of the 2GB and putting in a 4GB for a total of 6gb? or replacing both with 4GBs? Whats the most cost-effective way to upgrade the RAM and how can I resell the RAM that comes with the laptop? Thanks!
