Always about cost. So going for the non-touch MacBook, don't see myself using it - don't really like it, so narrowed it down to what machines. But base model i've got some money to spare - so should I upgrade the processor? or the RAM? I can't afford both. Main uses of the machines isn't anything too intense; standard web-browsing and emails, a lot of pages/number/keynote, iTunes, photo editing (in photos), I use handbrake to turn my DVDs to digital. Or just stick with the base and save even more - but i do want to the change to last a good three/four years like my current one which is almost 6.
