          Hi,

           

          definately op 2. SSD is a must and with 17.3" you (I) don't need external monitor.

            I think you will be happy with either choice, I understand what Markku means about the larger monitor, but you may find yourself wanting to use a docking station for a larger monitor when at your desk even with the 6800's larger screen. I have used the 4XXX series with no problems and would rather have a smaller overall size to carry.

             

            I have never used the SSD but I understand it can add speed to the operation of the system. There are some articles questioning "hard-use" reliability of SSD's, but with the config you are considering, keeping the part/assy/dwd files on the other drive would mitigate the potential problem.
