I got the MacBook Pro 17" with the 7200-rpm drive option, and it ships
with 2 gigs of ram. I also picked up a second monitor by Gateway. They
have a nice 22" HD LCD (model FPD2275W) for around $400 at Best Buy
that has a great picture and connects via DVI. I'm quite happy.
The MacBooks are nice too but I got tired of command-tabbing around my
12" Powerbook screen all the time.
