I'm planning on upgrading from a late 2011 MBP to the 13" MBA. I will primarily use the machine for web surfing, email, YouTube, and some photoshop use with the possibility of putting more of the creative suite on later. I'm in college so budget is a factor. Should I go with the 4 or 8 gb on the ram? Also 128 SSD vs. 256? The hard drive upgrade is about $200, but these days you can get an external 3T for less. I'm inclined to feel like I should save the money on the SSD for other upgrades. Also what are your thoughts on AppleCare? I had it on my Pro and hardly used it.
