Would the 17″ definitely be better than the 15′?

I use a 13″ Macbook Pro (one of the brand new models). It works perfectly for me. I wish I had a bigger screen but it works fine. I got spoiled with my Dual-22″ monitor MAC Pro.

MUST i max out to 8GB? I have an external hard drive at home for storage. Would be nice to have storage for about, I dunno, an hour worth of HD footage in the laptop so I don’t have to schlep an external.

I bought my MACbook Pro with the default equipment.

HARD DRIVE: I had planned ahead of time to buy a Seagate 7200 rpm 750GB HD from Bestbuy for a fraction of the price that MAC would have charged. It is the same manufacturer they use for the faster drives.

MEMORY: I asked the MAC store rep about where I can buy memory for my new MACBook Pro. He gave me two sites. I was able to get my memory for less than half the price for the same (manufacturer) memory as they use in the MACBOOKs.
