Which configuration should I go with? : config 1: Macbook Pro 13" 2.3GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x2GB 256GB Solid State Drive config 2: Macbook Pro 13" 2.7GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm What I will be using my computer for: mostly non-CPU intensive things like... - writing/editing word/powerpoint documents - recording university lectures - email/surfing occasional CPU intensive things like... - analyzing chess games - running a virtual machine of win xp (or maybe win 7) - converting movie files for use on ipod I understand that with more RAM I won't need to close apps as often, but with an SSD (Solid State Drive), app launching/closing will be faster. SSDs are also more rugged. My friend advised me that SSDs can slow down over time. I don't really need the 750 GB, but I can always wait until SSD price lowers and use the 750 GB hard drive as an external backup drive. What do you think?
