They did add the RAM and felt it was a good move. I'd do that and skip the SSD for now. But that's me.
I have a late 2008 2.4 GHz core 2 duo macbook. I was looking into upgrading the ram to 4gb and buying a 128gb SSD for it to prolong it's life. I can get the RAM and SSD from amazon for about $150. Now, I don't really need the machine to perform any really strenuous tasks. Just mostly video streaming and web surfing.
So my question is would the investment be worth the upgrade? Or should I just save my money? I'll be getting a new iMac when they come out, but I thought it'd be nice to have another option to view media away from my computer desk. So should I pull the trigger to keep my laptop alive, or just let it ride off in to the sunset?
