Go with the SSD, you won't look back. My desktop has a mirrored pair of SSD's and it SCREAMS on disk access!

It looks like I could go with a refurb from the below URL, get my own memory
and SSD, and pay about $1k less than if I were to buy it new from Apple:

It is slower... I have heard of several people that have upraded to an SSD
and love the speed. It may not be a problem for you. Try it and see.

As far as RAM you can do much better buying it from somewhere like Crucial.
Save the original RAM in case there is ever a problem though. I think they
frown on non-Apple RAM. Though it does work.
