This post will probably show how much of a newbie I am haha. I have a pretty good discount through work on the MBP and a willing buyer for my Dell Desktop which means its MBP time!! I had a few questions though: 1. Is it worth the upgrade to the 250gig hdd @7200rpms as opposed to the standard? 2. I keep hearing that everybody is buying Ram from a third party. Is that the best option? I will be running window XP as well so is it necessary to get 4 gigs? 3. Is Iworks worth it?
