Greetings everyone. I would like to first start off by saying that I'm sure this topic has been beat to death. But I just need a few opinions. I know 200mhz isn't much of an increase in speed, but for a music engineering student using protools and logic with assorted plugins really tax the system. My question is will I actually notice a difference in the processing power ? I am also somewhat of an indie film maker, so would I need the 256MB ram for video editing apps ? I'm thinking something like this, using my edu discount to go for the 2.2 128MB version and a 20 or 23 inch display or just the 2.4 256MB version. Thanks!
