Hello, I'm a longtime lurker, but first time poster in this forum. After looking around this forum, I've decided that I'm going to buy a new Macbook Pro with the Back-to-School Promotion. Now, the real issue. I've looked around a bunch of threads that helped decide and differentiate between the 2.26 and 2.53 GHz 13" MBP's. I think the general consensus is to just buy the baseline MBP and upgrade the RAM and HDD if I'm just going to perform basic tasks (iTunes, Word, Safari, etc.). I've pretty much decided on buying the 2.26 GHz 13" MBP because it is more cost efficient to upgrade it myself. I know that I can upgrade the RAM to 4GB for cheaper than the Apple Store offers. I also am looking into eventually upgrading the HDD to a SSD that is around 256 GB, because it can make the computer performance significantly speedier without a faster processor. However, I will only buy my MBP with the baseline configuration if the SSD's get more affordable... and soon. Otherwise, I am really contemplating buying the 2.53 GHz 13" MBP just to save the hassle of not knowing when and for how much I can upgrade the harddrive and ultimately getting a (slightly) speedier computer. So basically, my question is: Does anyone know when the higher-capacity SSD drives will become more available and affordable? If not, which option would you recommend me choosing for now?
