Hi all, I know you are probably super sick of this topic by now, but I'm wondering if you'd oblige me for just one more go at it. I'm an incoming grad student & managed to finagle a free ride while keeping my job, so while I'm no millionaire I'm not a starving artist either. I'm not a gamer or a video editor or anything like that, but I'm going into a social science program and will probably be using excel and SPSS for mac (I hear that exists, right?). I use netflix instant but I'm terrible at returning the DVDs, so at this point I'm not expecting the optical drive thing to be much of a deciding issue. So, given these stats: would you go MBA 11" or MBP 13"? Seems silly to trade portability/design for power, and my understanding is that if I go for an MBP it'll cost a bit less, so I'm thinking I could make up for the loss of portability by buying a kindle. But those MBAs are so gosh darn pretty, and besides, it's pretty much impossible for me to get any work done in my house and I'm going to be living pretty far off campus, so I do expect I'm going to want to carry it around a lot. Based on this info, what would you recommend? If I do go for the MBA, I'd want to get the smallest version but have it be somewhat souped up... however, it looks like I'd be able to afford one but not two upgrades (e.g. more RAM or more flash storage, but not more of both). Assuming the refresh doesn't come with 4GB RAM standard, which of the upgrades would you recommend? Thanks to all!
