I am planning to get my first apple product. I customized my mac and picked out what I thought would be the best laptop. The value ended up being $2655.74 I know it's A LOT of money. But I am ready to make an investment for something that I think will last me for a few years. I have some people telling me that 4GB of RAM is way too much. I should stick with 2GB. But like I said before I am planning on keeping the laptop for a few years and I think in the next few years is going to start being more common to have 4GB of RAM. The other thing is, since its so much money some people are telling me to spend that on a MacBook Pro. What do you think? No, I will not be doing any video editing. I will use it mostly for medical school.
