    Im very close to buying a MacBook Pro ... and I was wondering if i needed a 500 gig hard drive or if the 320 gig drive would be fine... I do video editing... and i play iracing ... I dont need very much space on my windows partition... but as a student... do you think i need the 500 gig hard drive??? i like the 500 because it has the faster processor as well... any feedback would be appreciated... :apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple::apple:

    You can upgrade the HD to up to 1TB from aftermarket and if you're out of space, you can get an external HD to store movies etc

    Btw, depending on what kind of footage you want to edit (HD or uncompressed SD - approx. 20MB/s) and your seriousness about, get an external Firewire 800 HDD as a media scratch drive (to hold the actual media files and the rendered ones), as using the same physical HDD as the OS is residing on to also store the media files is not recommended and will give you serious slowdowns.
