Advice for new MB Pro addition

I'm looking at adding a MacBook Pro 15" 2.8 4 Gig to my lineup.
I use Photoshop CS4, lots of picture editing, possibly some video in the future but nothing heavy. Traditionally, I've tried to get higher end Mac's as I try to get them to last a long time before they get too slow to be worth their while.
Long story short, what do you think of the specs? Any areas you'd change upgrade/downgrade? Just looking for good longterm performance (over the course of several OS upgrades etc) and performance with PS etc.
Looks like Amazon has had the best deals on the Mac's (discount and no tax). Any place that's better?

Honestly speaking, with proper internal maintenance, most Macs should last you a long time without any slowing down at all. I've been using my Macbook ever since 2007, and it is even faster than when I initially bought it. Mind you, this is a machine with just 2.16 Ghz and 2GB of RAM. It's not exactly the fastest laptop in the world, but it is still serving me very well. Given, I don't have to using Photoshop and video editing all the time, but I have done so in the past without much hiccups. Now, the choice of your Macbook Pro really is more than enough for what you need it to do. Just make sure you do frequent internal maintenance and you should have a great machine for the next couple of years and OS refreshes. =)
