I'm going to be buying a MacBook Pro soon for college (discount + iPod) and currently I'm just pricing and weighing my options. This will be my first Mac by the way. I would buy the 13" 2.66ghz but I want the extra resolution that the 15" offers. Heres my first question: Glossy or Matte (Anti-glare)? I've read glossy is not good in sunlight and that graphic designers prefer matte. Now I really want this to be fast and last me a long time so I'm gonna go with the 500GB (7200 rpm) hard drive. Now this brings me to my next question, the RAM. I'm leaning towards the 8GB (2x4GB) but have heard its cheaper to buy + install yourself. How hard is it to install yourself/whats the risk associated with doing it? What is the brand/type RAM I'd have to buy? I appreciate any input or feedback.
