    as friday becomes ever closer I am excited to get my new Macbook Pro.
    I still don't know what model to go for but the 13" is very very tempting.
    Basically I want/need 4GB of ram. Should i get the base 13" model and upgrade it myself? I will also need at least 250gb hd. Should i just buy the next 13" model up instead?

    Install RAM and HDD yourself. Don't buy upgrades from Apple.

    Is it easy to upgrade HDD?

    What is a better choise? To buy a MBP 13'' 2.26Ghz and upgrade it or buy the 2.53Ghz model? Does the processor make a huge difference?

    I guess there are loads of guides out there on how to do it. however, in reality is it actually easy? i've installed ram and hds in desktops before.. but not a laptop
