So I want to get the middle of the line 2.16 macbook. I don't want to spend a ton of money but I do want to add some upgrades to it. My current thought is this, I could put about 4gig of ram in it (to truly increase speed/performance) since I want to take advantage of dual channel, and I could upgrade the hard drive from the base 120 to 160 through the apple store (since its like 60 bucks with an educational discount and therefore cheaper than doing it 3rd party) bringing the extra total spend to around 300. Or I could buy the WD Scorpio 250 gb hd for around 190 and buy 2 gigs of ram for around 100 and still be spending around 300. Those are the two choices I have narrowed my upgrade down to but I am having trouble deciding which I would benefit from the most. I don't do a ton of editing, but I do run a lot of programs at once, and storage is incredibly important to me as I have almost 80 gigs of music and growing. (for the record I have a 160 gig external currently, I just hate running a music library off an external (which is what I am currently doing)).
