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