Hi there, First let me sat that I'm no techie so probably some of these questions will be stupid. But I really don't know and am not literate in all the technical aspects of computers! So please bear with me! I am a student and going to get a 13" MBP soon (been waiting for the back to school special...and now going to wait until after WWDC just in the very small case that would change anything since it is a week away). After researching on here, I decided that the 2.44 processor should fit my needs (I will be using this laptop for just typical student reasons...Internet, email, iTunes, writing papers, etc.). Where I am unsure is the RAM and the hard drive? I know there is one of those that you can update later, for less money...which if I understand it, is the thing to do. So what advice can y'all give me as far as selecting RAM and hard drive? I am clueless! My next question would be about a case. I definitely want to put one on to protect it. I have seen lots of brands and different places to purchase them. I see that there are hard cases and then the soft silicone ones. So which is better? I have seen the brands Specks, mCover, IVEA, etc. Any recommendation on what to get in this department (or even what NOT to get) would help. It is kinda one of those things when other people's experience and reviews really can be useful! Lastly I don't know really what to do as far as the free iPod. I have a 32gb 3gs iPhone and an iPod that is old as dirt...it is literally a 1st generation nano that has a black and white screen! So I definitely need a new iPod! I am torn about what to get. One thing I think I'll really use (besides playing music) is the video part. I love the nanos but the screen is pretty small when it comes to watching video. So I don't know whether to pay the extra $50 to get the classic or get the itouch (probably would upgrade to a bigger memory bc 8 gb i don't think would hold what I need my primary iPod to hold). The screen on the touch would be nice for video but the classic would hold so much more. If I didn't already have the iPhone, I don't think I would even writing this. I would get the Touch hands down. But since the iPhone provides me with Internet, email, and the apps...it makes me question which direction to go with this iPod rebate deal. Anyone have any thoughts? Again, thanks for bearing with me. Any input would be very very appreciated...whether it be on one or all the aspects I asked about above. Thanks so much in advance!!
