I'm really tempted to buy the new MacBook Air 13", and the only thing holding me back is the low storage... I'm coming from a MacBook with a 640gb hdd, so even the highest amount of storage on the MacBook Air would be way too low for me. So since I'm sure many of you MBA owners use more than 256gb of storage, I am curious as to how you deal with it, and what the best solutions are. If you guys can help me think of a feasible solution I'll order ASAP. :)

Even a 512GB SSD would be too big for you. Do you really need all that on your Mac? I would think about what you really need.

Depending on your budget. The question is, do you *really* need to carry all your videos, music and pictures with you?

I'm using around 320gb of the 640gb that I have, and about 200gb is video. Would there be an easy way to get that 200gb of video on an external drive and have it ready to use right when the drive is plugged in?
