    Get the 2.2, and be sure to upgrade the ram yourself. You won't notice the 2.2 vs. 2.4 difference unless you're constantly using 99% of *both* cores when you get your computer.

    Buy 2.4 with minimum memory, then upgrade it yourself to 4 GB. Easier than turning the machine on.

    I would...

    go with the 2.4. As a graphic artist i always try to get the best processor and graphics up front. ram can always be added later when cash in your change jar.:D
