Still in my quandary as to what to get! Past up a good deal at Best Buy only to find another good deal from Nebraska Furniture Mart! My quandary is two-fold. First, I suspect my needs for a drive are small. Sales people from Apple Store, Best Buy and others think I would be fine with a 128. However, I keep reading here that a 256 is recommended. I do want to get a external hard drive as a back up and do plan to archive in the cloud. Just wonder how much that could reduce my need for the bigger drive. Second, if I opt for a MacBook Air with 8/256 I find I am only $100 away from a MacBook Pro (w/retina) 8/128. I do believe I would be content without the retina, but it is tempting! Would appreciate people's opinions! Thanks! Edit: forgot to mention that the deals only last through this coming Sunday, so time is short.
