About to do a BTO and was wondering if I should max out CPU or 1TB SSD? Assuming I could only do one. Thanks

Mainly work and spreadsheets, I am getting rid of a iMac and MacBook Air and consolidating to one computer so want a nice compromise. I am getting 15" mbp with touchbar and 4gb video card option. Just deciding on final upgrade. Thanks

SSD, CPU will complete tasks a bit slower on large compute loads, but when you're out of disk space, you're out.

Another option was max out CPU and get USB-c ssd for extra storage? Thoughts?

I would get SSD over the final CPU upgrade. If you started with the 2,799 model MBP, the 2.9 chip has the same 8MB L3 cache as the 3.1 chip (vs 6 MB on 2,399 model).
