I have been thinking about putting in a larger HDD (160GB) and getting a DL Superdrive for it, but then again, is there really any point in upgrading it anymore?

I tend to use a computer for 3 years, so I would get a new laptop by the beginning of next year. (Although this might be a bit earlier, as there are some courses in university that, unfortunately, oblige me to use Windows applications)

What do you guys think, pimp the 12" or use it till I get a new one, and speed up the new purchase?

I also have an RevC 12" and I recently picked up an external 20" wide LCD for it... Feels like I have a new computer.

I am not sure why I waited so long to get an external monitor.. You really do get the best of both worlds. Ultra portability in the 12" form factor, and when at home you get a nice big bad screen to use.
