Help in choosing a new MacbookPro

I am planning on buying my first Macbook and I am having a hard time choosing between the 15-inch 2.3Ghz and the 15-inch 2.6Ghz model.
Should I go for the 2.6Ghz model with 8GB RAM and 750GB Hard Drive? Or get the 2.3Ghz model and later upgrade the RAM and install the SSD in it since the 2.3Ghz model is cheaper than the other.
Any other suggestions/help would be really appreciated.

Don't confuse the decision with ram and storage upgrades. Your first decision should be whether to get the 2.3 or 2.6ghz 15" MacBook Pro.
- Firstly I have to assume that you're talking about the non-retina MacBook Pro's.
- Secondly...since the 15" only comes in the stock configuration of 2.3ghz...I'm assuming you are choosing it...then upgrading it to the 2.6ghz cpu on the configuration page.
One thing to take careful notice of...when you upgrade the 15" non-retina MBP from 2.3 to 2.6ghz...you also double the amount of video ram (from 512meg to 1gig).
Once you have chosen between the 2.3 or 2.6ghz 15" MBP...then you can start thinking about ram and storage upgrades.
