Great post guys thanks for all the insight! Im buying a new iMac in January and this is one of my decisions...
I am a pro photographer and currently use a MBP for my editing with LR. I keep my Catalogue on my HD and all my images get stored and backed up on two externals (I always have 2 copies of my files at any given time, on 2 different drives in the event one fails)...
So for my new system I'm opting for the 3TB for the following reason...
I can keep my Catalogue and a years worth of images on the internal drive. This will allow me to access the images very quickly as they will sit on the main internal drive. If I were to do this on a 1TB drive, as soon as it got about half way full it would start to get sluggish. At least with 3TB worth of storage I can keep a good amount of images on the internal HD and still back up to an external. And then I won't be pulling my working images (or the images I look at a lot, like vacation or pics of the kids) from a slow external drive.
I also have a hard time justifying going out and buying 2 new external hard drives (Id want to upgrade to USB3 at least) when I have 2 that are working just fine (just a slow USB2). I don't mind using slow externals if I don't need to access them frequently, or to work on them for clients images.
Once my old externals start getting full I take them and store them off-site so I will hopefully never lose the super valuable pics of the kids etc...
