I realize there will be a lot of these threads over the next days, weeks, and months. I was thinking... - 16 GB of RAM - 512 GB SSD - Updating the Ethernet to 10 Gb because why not and even though I have FiOS which is very fast, it could go even faster. - Applecare+ obviously I was almost considering upgrading to the i7 and/or getting 32 GB of RAM. Why 32 GB of RAM? Why not? It would certainly allow me to keep this machine for a lot longer.
