If you can afford the difference i would go for the 20" screen, you can always use more screen space. As far as the ram goes, there isn't a whole lot of increase in 1 gig to 2 gig that you notice, but it will make a difference if you do a lot of multitasking and is worth the extra cost. Just don't get that second gig from Apple, you will pay way to much for it and installing another gig of ram into an iMac is a simple job that only takes a few minutes.

I am also one who never buys the extra insuranace and so far after over 30 years of buying electronics i have not regreted it... now if your the unlucky type it might be worth it, other wise i wouldn't spend the money.

Go with the 160 gig hard drive. Later if you find you need more, external drives are fairly cheap and a snap to hook up.

Mac Pro Intel 2.66 - 4 Gigs Ram - 10.6.1 - 30" Apple Monitor
iMac 24" 2 gigs ram - MacBook Pro
