I am a n00b here, but I did do a search. I am obsessed with the MacBook Pro. I've read the user's guide, the service manual, and every forum post I can find about people waiting for and receiving them. I have a choice to make today, about which model. I don't want to wait to order one from my sources online, that could take forever, but would save me some $$. So now I can get the 1.87, or pay $450 more for the 2.0. I'm thinking the 2x512 dual channel is going to be faster than the single 1 Gig, so I'll get an extra 512 stick. Eventually, I'm going to crack it open and replace the HD with a 160GB (or higher) perpendicular drive, so the 80GB is fine. My main concern is processor speed and video, is that worth the extra $500? I have 2 hours before the store opens and the machines go on sale, then we don't know when the next shipment will be. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the MBP, but not which one to get. The only other person I know that has a MacBook has the 2.16 and will mock me for purchasing a lesser model, rather than advise me. Thanks in advance, guys.
