    Questions...

    Is it worth spending more on the P series Core 2 Duo rather than just going with the T5800? I do moderate tasks on the notebook. The most ambitious being video editing, which I will have a 256 video card to help with.

    I know the manufacturers love to "kill" you on extras. Is it worth going with 4 or RAM versus 2 or buying it later if the system seems slow? (64 bit Vista).

    Thanks...

    You can find ram and CPUs for much cheaper if you buy them aftermarket. Just go with the T5800 and the 2GB of ram.

    Yes the RAM is better to buy on the market and upgrade yourself . For the P and T series, unless you really care about battery life, go with the t series. The pseries really just provides battery batter life and I guess maybe a slightly cooler laptop.
