How did you decide 128GB vs 256GB?
I have settled on going with a 13'' MBA with 8GB. The only thing I am having a hard time deciding on is whether to go with the 128GB vs 256GB SSD. I know, buy as much RAM (will do), CPU (maybe) and HDD space (probably not?) as you can afford.
But the MBA isn't going to be something that I need to drag 1TB of data with me constantly. I just want something lighter, smaller and easier to travel with. Part of the reason I am selling my MBP.
I assume with 128GB drive I will have around 110-115 GB of available space when I get the computer? With my cloud storage I already have ~17GB of cloud space available if I need it. Add in that I have a small WD Passport 500GB drive that I can travel with for music and movies I think I should have plenty of space available. Especially considering how the cost of HDD space is dropping, SDXC is even becoming an option to transport movies for a weekend when you can get 64GB for ~$45. Or I can get a 1TB USB 3 external drive for ~$80. Amazing how prices have dropped.
For the extra $300 is it even worth considering the 256GB? If anything, in 2 years or so when SSD has become cheaper, I can always upgrade by going with OWC or another brand for much cheaper than $300.
Is there anything I am missing?
