Max out the RAM when you buy it because you cannot upgrade it after-the-fact 
because it is soldered to the motherboard (unlike the MacBook Pro, or most 
other laptops).

I had a choice between an Intel i5 or i7 when I bought mine, but I feel the i7 
was a waste because the laptop overheats when doing anything CPU-intensive like 
encoding video, so the extra CPU grunt is not worth it in my opinion.

But then again, you can't upgrade after-the-fact, so if you can afford the 
optional extra, go for it.

Put it this way: I don't regret spending the extra money on the i7 even though 
I don't need it.  But I do massively regret not spending the extra money on the 
RAM because now it is too late.
