I'm a college student and I'm in the process of configuring a Macbook Pro, but I'm unsure of the specifications I want. I've been a PC user all my life and I'm making the switch to a Mac. I want to stick with a 13" since I'm on a budget. I feel like getting the base model, but I feel that 2GB of ram will not be enough and the 160GB hard drive will be too small. 13-inch : 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 2GB memory 160GB hard drive Price: $1,099.00 Student Price or 13-inch : 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory 250GB hard drive Price: $1,234.00 Student Price Or should I just spend 165 dollars ($1,399.00) and get: 13-inch : 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory 250GB hard drive Price: $1,399.00 Student Price Is paying 165 extra for the processor worth it? I will be doing basic photo shop, word, excel, itunes, and browse the net. I read that a lot of people say that I should just buy extra ram and a bigger hard drive separately, but upon my research I found that it's the same price. What do you guys think? For sure I will get a larger hard drive as I listen to music and have a lot of pictures. As for the ram, do you think paying 90 extra for it is worth it and necessary?
