    I think on any system moving to a SSD is one of the easiest yet most impressive upgrades available right now. I recently upgraded my desktop PC to a Sandforce 2 based SSD and the difference was night and day. I imagine the difference in a laptop is even more noticeable, as many laptops sacrifice a little bit of speed for power savings in the hard drive department.

Loading something as simple as iTunes took 3-4 seconds on the stock MBP, where mine loaded it in less than 1 second. So glad I upgraded the hard drive.
    Upgrading to a Solid State Drive is the absolute MUST for laptop owners IMHO. Sure they are smallish in size but if you want storage then carry around a couple SD cards of USB Flash Drives. Problem solved.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    Yeah, all I did is took the normal 250GB hard drive that it came with and bought a $10 mini USB-powered enclosure for it. Space problem solved.

    Got Microsoft Office 2011 through my work for $9.99. Installed it today and I really like it on OSX, feels the same. Love the Remote Desktop client, can control my Windows desktop from my MBP. It works much better than controlling it from the iPad which is what I was doing sometimes before. Everything responds much quicker, and is easier to use because of the trackpad and real mouse buttons.
