I was going to get the middle tier MBP but after the Education Discount and upgrading what I want on the lowest tier, that one seems to suit me fine and it's still quite a bit cheaper. I'm either going to get the 250 @ 7200 or 350 @ 5400. Is the rpm difference really that noticeable? I think I could manage with the 250GB anyway, but it would be kind of nice if the rpm doesn't make much of a difference. The other thing I'd be looking to upgrade is the ram from 2 to 4GB. I'll probably end up getting some output cables to hook up to my HDTV but I'm not too sure about that yet. So that right there is $2,211.00 CDN. Anything else that I should look at to upgrade on the lowest tier model? I'll be doing some post-production editing if that changes anything (I have FCS, so I won't need FC Express). One last thing, I'm going to be selling my current iMac (The first aluminum 20" model released after they remolded the white plastic one. Purchased in Sept 07 I believe), Does anyone know of a estimated price that I could get for the computer?
