What I foresee my self doing is word processing, web surfing, streaming video (YouTube, Hulu), light gaming, very light GIMPing, iTunes. The 2.26 is fine, right? I don't want to spring for the 2.53. Way more expensive.

the 2.2ghz model will be fine, the only upgrade you might want to do is the ram (to 4gb). if you are in the USA it seems like ram is cheep over ther and is worth doing on your own.
that model will easily cope with web pages and youtube exc.
gaming wise i have looked up and people can play wow, oblivion and team fortres with good settings and good fps.

the only major reason i would se in upgrading if you like things as fast as possible or want to do some higher level of gaming and then you would need the 9600m chip, this will cost alot more and will only be usefull if you do alot of gaming on games such as crysis or like maxing out other games.
