    It's not bad deal. The only problem I would have is that 16:9 screen... Also, kuddos on getting that Intel SSD. Just that part is ~$440

    I know, I hate it. 16:10 is computer resolution

    I very strongly agree with that. I hate all the new computers coming out with the 16:9. 16:10 is just so much more useable as a computer resolution, but still allows for playback of widescreen material without giant bars. At least the iMacs are large enough and have a big enough resolution to be useable. I love that the MB(P)s are still 16:10 though.

    To OP, I'd say that is a pretty good deal, especially with the SSD

    For sure, I was originally just gunna get a basic cheap 500gb and then throw in a Momentus XT, but 30% Bing Cash Back popped up so upgraded to the SSD and 6gigs instead of 4.
    Thanks
