not a whole lot. i'd probably format my machine and give it a fresh start every year.

Agreed. I would say just pick one up with > 1 yr warranty and you should be set.

I'd suggest an Apple Cinema display. 27" should do well.

Or you could score a used 24"/30" on the cheap. Probably for around the Ultrasharp's price.

I go back and forth between 15" and 13" laptops, and I don't really miss the real estate unless I'm doing engineering work or something that absolutely benefits from a super high res screen.

I'd just get a passport or a freeagent go. They're on the cheap and I'm guessing that performance isn't really a factor since most people don't try to run apps off a portable drive.

Same. I've seen nothing short but perfection from Apple's refurb. Given the choice between saving 15% and a new one that I literally can't tell any difference from a refurb, I'd happily keep the...

.26 Ghz doesn't make a whole lot of difference at all. The more ram, the better. 8Gbs is pretty cheap these days.

Kindle or nothing at all. After half year I still can't seem to justify the money for an iPad.

I almost never think the huge jump in price for the best processor is ever worth it, unless you're a crazy power user. I think you'd hardly notice a difference.

15-20 times longer in boot up? I have a 1yo. MBP that doesn't boot much faster if any than my 5 year old C2D Conroe w/ Win7. 10 times of updates a week? Forget about multitasking?

The sandy bridge architecture is right around the corner. It's what's keeping me from updating my 1 rev old C2D. I'd wait.

By the looks of it, that monitor doesn't ship with a DVI cable. Just a DVI to HDMI cable.

You'll just need the adapter to go from display port, and a DVI to DVI cable to plug it into from the...
