    I am planning to buy a macbook pro. I am not sure whether i should buy a macbook 2.2 and then upgrade to 4 gig and 200 gig 7200 rpm myself, or buy a 2.4 ghz and just leave it as it is. I will use it for some gaming, but mostly for music, schoolwork and some PS.

    If you have the money, buy the 2.4 ghz and see how he 2 GB fits the bill. If it feels fine, start saving for some more ram to buy 6 months from now. If it's too slow (which I doubt) you can always look forward to getting 4 gb :)

    i'd go for the ram but what makes the 2.4 so appealing to me is its 256MB video ram

    It sure is but for the OP's needs the base model will do him/her just fine.

    i think ill buy the low-end and then upgrade it. It is both cheapest and it seems like i get a faster mac with 4gig, than with 2gig and 2.4 ghz.

    Upgrade the RAM, it'll make you feel better knowing that you've maxed out your computer's RAM limit :D
