Buying a T530, upgrades and compatibility

Hello, 

 

I've decided to purchase a T530 coming from a T410, hoping to get some opinions on which upgrades to choose.  I really like the larger screen size and backlit keyboard Smiley Wink

 

The laptop is going to be used primarily for programming which I do a lot of so an HD display is preferable, as well as a local server running a LAMP configuration.

 

 I"m currently dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 which I plan on doing with the T530 except with Ubuntu 13.04 and Windows 8 with a default LAMP configuration on both and a central partition for storage sharing.  

 

I finally chose to go with the following upgrades:

- (Processor) Intel Core i5-3230M Processor (3.20GHz, 3MB Cache, 1600MHz) with Intel HD Graphics 4000

- (Display) 15.6" HD+ (1600 x 900) LED Backlit AntiGlare Display, Mobile Broadband Ready

- (Wifi) Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN

 

Should I add or change anything based off primary usage as well as performance?

 

Thanks in advance.
