    Evening forum! :)
    I've thought it over and over and I'm going to purchase the MacBook over the MacBook Pro because I like the overall look better =)

    Now, my question is.. which upgrades will be worth paying for (in terms of plain performance)?
    I WILL be multi-tasking a lot and I'll be doing some photo editing here and there I'll be using Illustrator quite commonly. Other than that, the day-to-day usage (mail, iTunes, QuickTime) can't be left out.

    For this little 'project' I'm on a budget of €1400,- (-€850,- for the MacBook = €550,- left for possible upgrades).

    As I said, I WILL be multi-tasking quite a lot, so I think an upgrade to 4GB RAM will be imminent, won't it?
    Also, I've been looking into upgrading to an SSD (Intel X25-M/OCZ Vertex), would this really be worth the price? I read some reviews and the benchmarks blow me away, the system itself would become a lot faster using an SSD (reading-wise).

    Now, my last question: does anyone have any suggestions about (other) possible upgrades that I could perform?

    Thanks again ;)
