    Newbie needs some help here. I decided to go with my FIRST mac the MBP 15.4 2.4Mhz and 4GB of RAM I plan to run VMWare Fusion do you think

    - 250 GB is enough or should I go for 320 GB? I plan to run Vista as well and I keep my personal data mainly on my NAS (HPMediaVault).

    - SHould I get the harddisk speed 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM? I don't do game or graphic mainly web, banking and vmware.

    Thanks for your help!

    Don't EVER buy a HDD from Apple. Buy one third party, install it yourself, and go from there.

    It's far cheaper, and you get TWO hard drives for LESS than the price of Apple's upgrade in most cases.

    Very good point... Today at the store the Mac sales show me how easy to remove the HDD.
