I wanted to make sure that the machine I was getting (at this price) is as close to perfect as can be and at the same time try to cut down on the expenses. It all added up to this setup created for daily photo and video editing with effects, along with the occasional rendering: Have exchanged some parts... - 15" 2.2 ghz - 4gb stock ram (will be remove and replaced) with 8gb ram, Crucial ram - 750 gb 5400 stock drive (will be remove and docked for storage) in External case from ZapWare in Germany - 240gb SSD, Vertex 3, in main bay, divided into two partitions. - 750gb HDD, WD Scorpio Black 7200 rpm, mounted in the optibay (this one has SMS right?) with Optibay from ZapWare in Germany (I think they actually sell the MCETech one...) - And then the Superdrive mounted in the included case from Zapware. Regardless of peoples attitude towards additional cooling, I went ahead and bought a Chilldesk XL mini. Once the prices on the OWC ram goes down, I dont see a reason not to fill 'er up ;P Comments? Any parts I should change here at the last minute?
