So I'm considering upgrading to a 13" MBP from an '07 White MB, so I'll obviously see a massive improvement no matter what I get. From what I've read here, SSDs are very much worth the price if you have an external HD for storage. I've got a 500 gb Time Capsule and keep about 70 GB on my macbook right now, and don't see myself needing too much more. I'm hoping to not spend over 1400, so is the best choice to get the 13" MBP (with education discount) and then a 120gb SSD and install it myself? I know the Apple ones are supposed to suck. There doesn't seem to be an intel 120 GB unfortunately. Also, does installing a new drive yourself void the warranty? I'm going to use it for web, photo browsing, movie viewing, and some (mostly older) games. Just wondering if the 300 or so the SSD costs would be better spent somewhere else. Thanks.
