For your kitchen cabinets (and most furniture builds) the smaller domino 500 is all you'll need. The 700 is aimed at larger jobs like doors,gates and larger table bases,etc..
Yep, probably wise to go with a vac package with that, if you don't already have a vac to plug the domino into. If you have a regular vac that you can plug the tool into, that would be fine for the domino as you won't be turning the suction down with this particular tool.
If you are thinking about sanders in the future, the variable speed vac is really useful.
If you want to store systainers on the vac (and not use the dust deputy) get the 36. If you want the dust deputy (and no systainer storage on the vac) get the 26.
The only assesory I've used for the domino is their narrow stock centering jig, and that has worked well. I wouldn't bother with the rest, they are flimsy plastic and not accurate to be honest.
Aftermarket assesories are much better quality.
You probably don't really need the boom arm for the domino to be honest. You'll feel the benefits of the boom arm with a tool that you are moving while in operation, like a tracksaw or sander. If your budget allows, it's a nice bling item for your setup

BTW, Festool has apparently changed their package deals so that lots of stuff works with a vac or table. Check out this blog post of 4/29/15:

Pretty cool.

Dust bags for a CT26 are a little under $8 each. Given the inconvenience of not storing sustainers on top, I'm not sure the Dust Deputy is a good idea for hobbyists.

Good point Jesse, although are we sure you can't put a systainers on before the DD? It apparently attached the same way and is then just hooked up with hoses. I'm sure it's not as handy having to take it off to get to the container though.

yep, it would kind of defeat the purpose of having a few select systainers at hand on the vac, if you would need to remove the DD to access them. Also, I'm not sure the supplied hose would be long enough to fit anything under the DD unit.
The systainer mounting on the vacs is of more benefit to the tradesman/woman that needs to be mobile. In a shop environment, there really isn't much need for it IMO.

Agreed. About the only downside I can think of regarding the DD on a CT in a shop is it gets hard to tuck the CT under a table. Also keep in mind Festool may make a stink about a CT warranty claim if they think they can source the cause to the DD. But there's been a lot done now with the DD to address static build up.

I got the upgrade kit from Oneida (for free) and haven't experienced any static since installing it. Seems to be fine now.

I suggest the Domino manual by Jerry Work - very informative, you can get it off his website.
