I was going to ask about that @TheDoc.
I have the 8GB MBP, I know there are 16GB kits, is that a waste? I’ve heard some say they swear by it, and some say it’s a waste. I also don’t want to have the machine running on some crappy 3rd party chip.

As far as the SSD, do you recommend anything other than the SSD kit from the Apple Store? $750 for 512GB kinds hurts, will any SSD run alright?
