    Doesn't matter. I use www purely for psychological reasons. People are so used to seeing it. One less thing for a visitor to subconsciously notice.

    Like you said yourself, pick one and stick with it, it doesn't really matter for seo in my experience once you have consistency, but I personally use the www for aesthetic reasons.

    Absolutely not matter !
    I have several websites, with and without WWW, and no SEO differences.

    Set up a .htaccess file and your preferences in google webmaster tools to deal with this
