Hello all, This is my first post so please be kind I have finally decided to buy another mac laptop, after being without one for a considerable amount of time, and think that i will go for a macbook white. I have a maximum £1000 to spend, but would rather keep it as low as possible as anything over £700 will have to come out of my overdraft and as a uni student that is something best avoided. My use for the machine will be mostly average stuff...typing using pages and macspeech dictate, surfing the web with up to 10 tabs at a time, using bbci player and youtube, mail, storing photos and video (while away from my desktop), listening to some itunes, and the odd bit of photoshop (but not crucial stuff!). It would also be nice to be able to watch DVD's on it! I will be buying applecare with it (it is only £50 as a student), and will be taking advantage of the ipod and printer rebate if i can get the cash up-front!) My question is this however...should I look to get any upgrades when I order the machine? Here is my thinking... 1. Should I bump the ram to 4GB with apple, as from crucial it is around £45, but only £69 with apple and has applecare? 2. Should I upgrade the hard drive to either 250 (for £35) or 320GB? (for £69) I will probably never do this in the future, so would like to get what will last me for a couple of years! As far as I can tell an OEM 320GB drive costs about £40 from a third party, so again would be more expensive from apple but also less hassle and would include applecare! I'm going to order either tomorrow or the day after and don't want to make a mistake that i will regret later! Price on its own (+ applecare) = £690 Price with 4GB +250 GB (+ applecare) = £793 Price with 4GB +320 GB (+ applecare) = £828 What do you think I should do? Thanks for any advice you guys have!
