I plan on throwing a SSD and 4GB of RAM in it. It's got the 2.2 GHz Intel C2D, so that's a pretty peppy processor. My question is would throwing $250 into this laptop be a waste, or do you think this will be worth the $250? I guess another way of putting it would be: $250 for an SSD based laptop w/ 4GB RAM and 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo or (sell the lappy for $500) and find a better computer for under $800? Besides the i series from Intel and apple's shift to dedicated video (which doesn't really apply to me that much), there doesn't seem to be that much incentive to buy a new unit. The SSD will feel really fast I think. And the black macbook just looks so fly.
