    About to order parts for my MBP 13" and looking to see if there any last minute suggestions:

    External DVD Burner (bad internal)
    2nd HDD
    HDD Caddy

    Any input would be great, looking at ordering soon, since besides a SSD this is the only other upgrade I can do.

    How about bumping the RAM to 16GB?

    Done :) Actually was one of the first things I did after I got the MBP. Only other thing I can do is throw an SSD in, however until prices come down on the 512gig to what I can consider a reasonable amount I will put it off.

    It'll be at least another 5 years before SSD prices drop to that of HDD prices.

    I think this will happen sooner. Prices are droping by the day. You can already get 500gb for 180,-

    Yeah. I try not to buy on the local economy, even without the VAT the exchange rate is killer.
