Hi I'm gonna buy me my first Mac, a MBP this wednesday (and yes i know there's an update coming, but if it ain't there on tuesday, i'm buying the current one!). Anyway i'd like to know what you'd recommend for my needs. I'm gonna study economics from this summer and generally my current uses are like the ones on that study. That is internet browsing, MS Office stuff and other relativy light calculations and graphing. Also i'll be using iTunes, watching movies and tv-series and a tiny bit of Photoshop now and then! What would be the smarter move for my needs? - Buy high end 13" - Buy low end 13" and install 4 GB RAM and a 500 GB WD Scorpio HDD myself - Buy low end 13" and install 4 GB RAM and a 160 GB Intel x-25m SSD myself For my needs, as listed above, would the extra CPU from option 1 give me any noticeable speed boost? Also, the "problem" with the second and third options are that i really don't wanna mess up my totally new MBP by touching and leaving fingerprints on something "wrong" inside it - or do something wrong with one of the screws. Is it really as easy and "idiot safe" as they say? Also with those two options, what would i do with Snow Leopard? Doesn't that come preinstalled and good-to-go on the original HDD? So what'd i do on a new drive then? Last thing; what's the thing i hear about SSDs getting worse over time - and performing poorly when there's little room left on it? How long are we talking about - and how much room left? Hope you can help me out here!
