Alright.. so I'm getting a nice bonus from the company I work for, and have decided to purchase my very first mac. I'm in a bit of a dilemma and have a few questions... I really hope some of you experienced Mac users can guide me a bit. Anyways.. one thing is for sure... I'm getting a 24" model... so first question is: Is the panel used in the second biggest mode (the one with 2.93ghz and gt120 card) the same panel as the one in the biggest. As I've understood, it is supposed to be a H-IPS panel... can someone verify this? And then for my thoughts.. I'm going to upgraded it with the Radeon 4850 card... and my thoughts are: 1) 640gb is really enough for me.. I'm not in a vast need of getting 1tb 2) Paying the extra 150$ for 3% extra CPU speed (2.93 vs. 3.06) doesn't right off hand seem like a necessity.. So right off hand.. I'm thinking.. am I really getting that much out of it going for the top model rather than just settling for the 2.93ghz? What would YOU do?
