    So I've decided for my next machine I'll be getting the bast 13" MacBook Pro. :D I'm ordering it tomorrow so it will be delivered for when I get back to Uni.

    This is my first time owning a Mac so I'd like to compile a little shopping list based on your recommendations. I'm based in the UK so I would prefer not to buy from the states due to shipping costs...

    I will be needing the following:
    • A case/sleeve - I've read the Speck cases are good. Are they worth the money? Will I also need a sleeve when carrying it in my bag?
    • 8GB of RAM - can anyone recommend where to get it from? Preferably in the UK.
    • 128GB SSD - again, where from in the UK?
    • Optibay - I've seen some cheap ones on eBay but I want it to match the aluminium, can anyone recommend one that blends in nicely?
    • A DVI adapter - seen cheap ones on eBay, not sure how well they work. £21 from the Apple Store seems alot...

    If there's anything else you think I'd need please feel free to recommend stuff. ^_^

    I don't think the optibay is visible from outside
