Personally I disagree about the SSD. Plainly the "sweet spot" on SSD pricing is the 120/128GB. The price increase is only $20-30, the $/GB is much cheaper, the speed will be higher, the longevity improved, and you simply don't have to worry about what you put on it. The prices have come down so far that it's more cost effective to buy a 120/128GB drive. I won't buy anything smaller these days.
