You should be fine with that setup. As the above poster stated (2nd post), get the stock configuration of RAM and upgrade it from another site online. It's a lot cheaper and only takes a few minutes...

Meh, I regularly boot into Windows 7 all of the time. I'm not as fluent with the OS as I am with Mac now (keyboard commands, small productivity apps, etc.) but I can move around.

Some of the Apps overlap; why not use the keyboard commands and resize them after slapping them to the side? But it's only 2 bucks; if you don't like it, that sucks.

Caffeine just keeps the screen on, that doesn't prevent the system from going to sleep. Go check out the App InsomniaX. See if that will work for you.

Yep. But if you always want to go back, do a clean install with the SL disk. Sadly you can't do this with the new machines that ship with lion :/

You can get an external drive for way under 50 bucks; getting the Apple one is just throwing money away.

New MBP is what you need. SNB processor is going to give you a performance boost (as the chart states above) and you'll be able to do your work anywhere you would like.

Use Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. However you have to use the Mac App Store to download and install them. When you use that, it doesn't matter what browser you have.

It's going to come out within 2 weeks. We all know it. As soon as it does come out, we'll all know it.
