As I fill up my 500 GB SSD on my 2011 MBP, I've done what I always do in my upgrade cycle and look at new SSD's to upgrade to. $250 for a 1tb ssd on amazon.com. And then I check apple.com and even the top of the line Macbook pro only has 500GB. Honestly, I'm surprised people can manage with so little. I do really wish apple would give people a choice and make a macbook pro with a retina screen and a standard SSD.
