    This post is 2 part.

    1. While I can luckily (in this economy) afford any Mac config, I am leaning towards the 21.5 base, and upgrading memory myself. My rationality is I only use it for work (citrix + office) and light gaming. If I went 27 I'd be too tempted to max it out, ssd, etc... And I think it might be better to wait till ivy in 2012. Anyone else decide to go base on this rationality too?

    2. If I went 21.5, I'd like multiple monitors like my current office and home setup. If I used 2 21" in a tri setup ( tb>dvi, + USB) Would it run decently with that processor + gfc? Only used for real estate, and explorer windows + citrix. Also, will it automatically shut off the other two( for performance) if I get into a game, sc2 (fullscreen),etc... Or will it be a complicated process each time to do so?

    Sorry for the long post.

    It should be fine. The AMD 6750M is a decent GPU and definitely has the power for three 1920x1080 displays.
