Here's my little dilemma, I've got a 13" MBP 7,1 (mid 2010) all stock (250GB HDD 4GB RAM) that I'm completely happy with as is. For some reason, possibly due to boredom or just being a geek, I feel compelled to perform a little upgrade on my laptop. I've been eying SSD's for a while now but weary about buying one because of their price/GB and whole TRIM debate with SL and Lion. I still have plenty of room on my HDD, I also have an external that I keep most of my data on, so I could get away with a 120GB or even a 80GB SSD. I was also considering a memory upgrade from 4GB to 8GB since ram is cheap (?) at the moment and more ram is always a good idea. I'm a senior in college majoring in physics so I tend to use my mac for programming, analysis, papers, some games (steam!), heavy multi-tasking, internet...etc. Not so heavy on the media editing however. The near future looks to be grad school so my usage won't change too much in the coming years. Mostly likely won't upgrade my laptop for another 2 years at the earliest. So, SSD, RAM or pay a little extra off my student loan . Thanks!
