Opinions? I want a SSD for the quick boot up. Other than that I don't need much else - no gaming or anything, just word processing and internet browsing. Thanks!

8gb seems excessive unless you're multitasking a lot; I don't think you notice a difference between 4 or 8gb if you want to save some monie.
