Hey guys, if you're not familiar with me, I've been a member here since may 08 and finally just a little over a year later (not to mention nearly 5,000 posts ) it looks like i'll be getting my first mac, the 13" MBP. Apparently we're buying it in store so I had a few questions: 1. I know that I can upgrade to 4 GB of RAM for an additional $90 online (I'm well aware that id be better off doing this myself but my dad seems to want them to do it so im not going to fight him), will they do this in the store when I purchase my macbook? That will be the only upgrade. Also, if they do, about how long am I looking to wait for the upgrade? 2. I'm buying iwork, will it just be preinstalled or will I also receive the disk? 3. I'm not sure on the details of the up to date program, but am I correct that for $14.99 I will get a copy of SL mailed to me upon its release? 4. I'm going to be buying a cheap 19"+ lcd monitor soon as well as a bluetooth keyboard, any suggestions what to look for on ebay or craiglist? I want something sleek and without any annoying led lights on the front to bother me when I'm working in the dark. ? I really liked some of HP's I've seen, im looking to spend $130 max new or used. 5. I'm not so sure how the education discount and back to school sale work. I'm going to be attending college in september, but I have business cards with my name and email from the school, would this suffice to ensure I can get the education discount? Also, instead of the free 8GB touch, I'll need the 16GB to match what I have now. I've heard that in-store I can just pay the $70 difference and be on my way, does anyone know if this is correct? Thanks so much guys, this community is simply amazing and finally after almost a year of saving up, I'll finally actually be able to have my own mac to help me contribute here.
