any reason why you suggest only a 60gig ssd? It thoericatlly only needs to hold the OSX and the programs aka photoshop/lightroom/premiere + sc2 and diablo

You just said the reason yourself. I'd suggest this... i7 is better for editing. You can upgrade some parts, and get a better GPU. Also, no monitor in there.

It is definitely worth overclocking! If you don't want to (and I don't see why not), make sure to say so so that I can tweak it and save you a little bit of money.

Image quality and viewing angles, so if you game and video edit, an IPS panel is the best.

That is true, but it is by no means worse for gaming. You most likely will not notice ms differences below 8ms, so combined with good viewing angles, it makes IPS just as good.
