    Ok, so for those of you who helped me decide to get the high end with the 128 SSD instead of the low end with the 256gb SSD thank you.. I agree with you.

    Now I have a whole NEW DILEMA...

    I wanna keep the price down, I only have 1500 cash so the rest is going on my credit card. so less is more ( I MEAN i make good money though so I dont wanna be kicking myself for not spending a 100 bucks)

    SO here it is:
    1. High end 15" 2.2ghz 128 SSD w/ hi def anti-glare or glossy = $2,224
    or
    2. High end 15" 2.2ghz 128 SSD w/ 8gb RAM
    or
    3. High end 15" 2.2ghz 128 SSD w/2.3ghz upgrade
    OR ANY VARIATION OF 2 OF THESE OPTIONS BUT NOT ALL 3

    I mainly use my computer for surfing and movies/hulu projected to my flat screen via Mctivia (aka wirelessly) google Mctivia if you dont know what it is, its amazing!!! I will write a review when I get shipment in a few days.
    ALSO... I am starting to get into photography with DSLR so aperture wil be used a good bit, with photo editing, but I dont have trouble with glare really, so that isnt a good reason to get the anti-glare.

    Anti glare. You cant upgrade that later.

    You can upgrade the RAM later (for much cheaper than you would pay with Apple too!)

    why not? I have extermal 500gb that I keep all my pics and stuff on and I have a 5GB music library that maybe will expand to 20GB AT most... I dont use windows parralell... so maybe 20GB music (next year) and 20GB photos...

    and I plan on getting a bigger SSD when they become more reliable and cheaper... so probably 2-3 months... and 90 dollars is a great deal for 500 times faster computer imo
