My first post here, but I just wanted to let other users here share my experiences. I just upgraded from the last gen C2D MPB to the new santa rosa setup. I really wanted I big hard drive and 4GB of ram, but could stand to pay apple the extra $1000 or so. So thanks to newegg (no affiliation) I now have a 250gb Western Digital Scorpio drive installed and cooking with 4Gb of ram (PNY 2x2Gb) for about $400 total. Plus I get to recover costs by selling the 120GB drive and 2 1Gb sticks that shipped with the laptop. I am hoping for about $175 back with would make my total out of pocket for the laptop with 4GB and 250gigs about $2100. Not cheap, but compared to what I would have spent I am pleased. For anyone thats interested I took some picks while the case was opened up.
