    I'm about to make the jump and order the base mbp online with 4gb of ram, it would be the closest to my current setup (SR 2.4 4gb) however I could wait to get the ram upgrade and just pick one up at the store tomorrow, but since they use these new Nvidia chipsets i'm having second thoughts about it. Do you guys think that cheap ram will be easily available say after christmas? or will this be rare and expensive since the new chipset is used?

    I'm pretty sure apple's 4gb for another $150 for the low end mbp is a pretty good deal (or at least not a bad deal) -- remember this is ddr3 1066 memory so it costs a bit more...a quick look on newegg shows 2 sticks of 2gb ram costs about $160-$170 so it's basically exactly the same -- and you won't be wasting the other 2 sticks of ram you just bought
