    Virtual Machines shouldn't take that much space since they dynamically allocate memory.

    You'd probably be fine with 256GB if you're fine keeping your media libraries external.

    Check out the poll i have going on another thread on peoples set-ups. Looks like the 2.6/16/256 is winning , but i would go for the 512. The word is you will be able to upgrade the SSD in the future.

    I don’t think Apple would do it, it’s like upgrading the 2011 models. Its just a matter of time before aftermarket companies produce a replica 'harness' if you will that will mimic the current flash storage module. It’s all speculation at this point but that is the word on the street.
