This is what I know so far. After reading through the boards I'm getting: MBP 15" Processor: 2,66, because I figured 2,8 is too expensive for so little more. Memory: 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB , becuase I can upgrade myself to 2x4GB easily with just a third of the cost, right? Screen: Landed on Hi-res glossy So basically what I need help for is the choice of the HDD. Either way I'm going to upgrade from the original 5400rpm. Here's my two options: 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm 128GB Solid State Drive So which one should I get? Is the SSD really that fast that I keep reading of? Should I just go for 7200rpm and upgrade myself when the prices drop?
