As a longtime MacRumors member, this is my first thread to start! I've owned most iMac models, and several MacBook Pros (currently 2009 15".) I'm ordering a new 15' MacBook Pro on Wednesday and need your advice: Should I spring for the $180 (education pricing) to upgrade from 4GB to 8GB RAM? It seems that 8 might be a bit overkill right now (?) Probably the most intensive thing I do is play Starcraft II and transcode video files from ripped DVDs. Anyone think I will notice any benefit from 8GB? (And yes, I know $180 is about double the market price, but I don't mind paying for the convenience of having it preinstalled.) Also, $90 for a high res screen? I won't be watching 1080p content, so can you think of other benefits I would notice? Thanks for your comments.
