Get a much memory as you can afford. Also get it from a third party, it will be cheaper.

If if comes with 512, then I would get the additional 512 memory stick from a 3rd party.

you are better off getting the lowest amount from apple and just getting all the memory upgrades yourself to get it up to what you can afford
