I'm going to buy a 13"MBP in the next week or two and I have a couple of questions. 1. What are the advantages of buying the i7vs the i5 version? 2. Should I upgrade to the 8gb of ram? 3. I am a student (in the US), should I buy from a brick and mortar apple store and use a student discount? If I order online from apple, am I charged tax? Is there another online retailer I should buy from? Do other authorized apple resellers offer student discounts and AppleCare? I just want to get the best price on a good machine that will last and that can be serviced at my local apple store. Thanks!
