Ok I'm planning on buying a new 15'' macbook pro is probably the best as I figure that is probably the best size to carry around. http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MC371LL/A?mco=MTc0Njg1OTY So I would opt for this base model as its the cheapest seeing as it has the smallest ram and hardrive. I then want to purchase a 8GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB 512GB Solid State Drive and install it myself, as I have been told that would work out much cheaper. However I am at a loss as to where to buys these and if I am even looking at the right one. Can anyone help on them last two points, keeping in mind I am in the UK. p.s this is my friend typing, the one mentioned in my last thread, he is really paranoid about signing up for forums (I know its wierd) so I have allowed him to use my account to ask this.
