    McKeenFam, in your case 4GB is definitely enough, and the i5 is much much more enough for web browsing. Without putting tons of videowork on your laptop, 128GB SSD is plenty. So, just go with the stock model.

    Totally agree with CryoPenguin - the baseline stock model should be fine for your purposes.  But if you really want to spend some extra money, here are some things you might consider:


    1.  Carrying case - padded and with extra pockets

    2.  AppleCare

    3.  External HD - for full system backup and Time Machine.  USB 3 is amazingly fast now.

    4.  CD/DVD Burner -  in your case probably not really needed but these are cheap. 

    5.  iPad mini - absolutely the best toy ever invented by mankind.
