    I edit photos all day so hopefully it will be fast. hehe

    I couldn't justify the extra $800 for the 3.00 Ghz so I added extra ram instead.

    2.66 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
    4GB 667 DDR2 FB DIMM ECC-4x1GB
    NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256MB
    250GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drive
    500GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drive
    16x SuperDrive DL
    Airprt Extrm & BT 2.0+EDR
    Apple Keyboard & Mighty Mse
    Mac OS X
    Country Kit

    and the 30in HD Display helped out some.

    Fair enough, you can never have too much ram.. That's probably what killed the cost.. I'd imagine 4gb is pretty expensive.

    You could always buy your own RAM.

    A HUGE TIP - next time buy your own ram and install it your self - its very easy http://youtube.com/watch?v=Lb4KituRM6o

    apple charges huge amounts for ram.

    I know about the ram costing more at apple but I wanted it all to be covered under warranty. If anything goes wrong for any reason I don't want to have to wonder if it's the ram and start taking it out.
