Hey guys, First post, so I hope this is the right area. I'm not great with computers so please don't shoot me down, or throw lots of complicated computer language at me Okay here's the thing. I'm thinking of buying a MacBook Pro, now I want a fast one, so when buying do I want: 1. Increased GHz, if so what does this do? 2. Increased RAM to 8GB, again if so what does this do? 3. Buy a solid state drive and what is this? How does it increase performance in anyway? Now I understand that this can increase the price quite rapidly, so are there any other computers on the market that are cheaper and still have high Hz (like the 3.08GHz 17" MacBook Pro?) and 8GB of RAM? Also I'm actually quite fond of some applications on Windows also, if I install Windows onto my Mac, does it run fast and does it run well? Thank you so much if your able to answer any of these questions I've thrown at you.
