Starting a new thread. My questions started in someone else thread but wanted to start dedicated I am driving myself crazy over this choice. I as well will be upgrading the ram to 4gb and 7200rpm HD. I see benchmarks everywhere, but nothing tells me straight up. Is there anything the 2.0GHz can not do that the 2.4 can, other than the obvious time to do these tasks in question. I have watched countless Youtube videos and read many forums. Can I have some real people with knowledge express their opinions, to give us a hand? Oh!, My last Mac was a 24 inch 2.16GHz iMac with 128mb video card. And 2gb of ram. Will this macbook score a better rating than the iMac? About me: Software developer Like to dabble in some video editing(dont worry about firewire). Here is the hardware I was looking at: Memory: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820146878 Harddrive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136279 What do you guys recommend for this upgrade? Are my choices alright? Any help would be great, Much thanks!!
