So my wife and I have our share of apple products: Apple TV ( just got) MacBook 2010 unibody MacBook Air 2009 (gifting to her mother) iPhone 4S iPhone 3S MacBook Air 2011 Also have a hp g70 that may turn into a digital picture frame or htpc. I want to upgrade the macbook and 2011 air. Specifically on the MacBook my wife does not do any intensive task. She takes pictures and I've been showing her some basic editing. 90% of what she does is Internet browsing. I was planning on upgrading her ram to 8gigs, I'm doubtful she will see a difference in 8 and 16 for what she does. The real turmoil is with the hard drive. 1tb hdd 7200 for 69$ or 133 for a smaller 128 gig ssd. She doesn't care much about speed but I want to give it a face lift. Now for my air I can't decide between a lacie 128 thunderbolt ssd or an owc internal 180 plus dock (with original 64 gigs).
