How well does it perform, and what kind of performance could I expect with a couple desktops, several open web tabs/windows, iWork and Spotify? How well does it stream video? I'm a first time college freshman looking for a decent replacement notebook for campus. My major isn't computer-intensive and I'd like to think the same about my workflow. My 15" early 2008 MBP has got the 2.4 C2D, a spinning hdd, and only 2 gigs of ram. Not really sure if it's worth upgrading (at least $250 factoring a new ssd, 6 gigs of ram, and good battery) or if this new Macbook would be the worthwhile upgrade.
