Pretty much any Corsair or Mushkin kits play very well with MacBooks, OWC as well - the latter being the most recommended among people on the Apple/MR Forums. I would suggest going with a 15" if you're doing multimedia, the extra real estate due to resolution would probably be very welcome.

The prevailing build for students in your field over at MacRumors has been a base 15" model with 8GB of RAM - HDD/SSD varies between users, I've always been a fan of more storage space above SSD speed, there's a plethora of great 1TB notebook drives kicking around nowdays. (Ironic since I'm typing this on a MacBookAir )
