Hi Guys, I'm a longtime Windows user who is about to make his 1st purchase! I've decided on the following configuration: 15" 2.2ghz (doesn't seem worth the money for the 2.3) 4gb RAM (have a 8gb kit already) 128gb SSD High-Res AG Apple Care My plan is to upgrade the SSD (maybe Vertex 3 or another SandForce based SSD) after others have used it for a month to see if there are any probs. Is this a bad strategy or should I just get the 500gb and wait? $85 aint much so i thought I would enjoy an SSD for now. I also want to do a thermal paste upgrade as I've read Apple is pretty sloppy and over generous with paste. Will this void the warranty? If I use ninja style, is there a way for them to tell? I hear iStat Pro thrown around these parts often. Are there any other must have apps you recommend? My current plans are to install Parallels, Microsoft Office and Adobe CS5. Last question, is Apple Care worth it? I'm using my AmEx card so I get an extra year of my factory warranty by doing so. Thanks guys, I’ve been mulling over this purchase for weeks and I'm ready to start trolling with my MBP!
