    From experience, the 5400rpm drive that comes standard is plenty fast(opens applications in a blink.) I don't think it's worth the space tradeoff.

    The Ram is only necessary if you plan on multitasking a LOT of stuff, because even the 4 gigs of ram is plenty for most things.

    although i still have the 5400 it does not open applications in a blink... ssds will but more like opening photoshop takes 30 seconds
