So about a month ago I posted on this site how I wanted to get a rMBP and was totally sold, until the econ minor in my was like 'wait a minute you ****... you dont have 2400 to spend nor will you use the thing for what it is ment to be used for... MAXIMIZE UTILITY.' So I was like 'ya econ me you are probably right .' So now that I have come to my financial senses I am considering buy either the better MBP 13" or the MBA. I am leaning towards the Air personanlly, I love the size, and ease of portability. I am definatly going to upgrade the memory to 8GB but now I am stuck between getting 128 SSD or 256. My ideal situation for this mac is to be as inexpensive as possible so I can sell it or buy a new computer after school (maybe a graduation present) for what I may need it for in my career. I think I could live with 128 SSD if I get a nice new external hardrvie. should I just bite the bullet and get the 256? in that case its a 1599 dollar comuter for slower processor than the MBP which would have 750GB hard drive space... so now I am like wtf. I need to hear from some mac peps about this... SO my choices are MBA base model with 8GB memory and 128 SSD priced at $1,300 MBA badass model with 8GB memory and 256 SSD priced at $1,600 MBP 13" badass model with 8GB memory and 700GB harddrive priced at $1,500 For those of you who will undoubtly want to know before answering. I am a marketing major and a double minor in Sport and Event Mangement and Economics. I have access to two mac desktops in a extra curricular job that I have and do most of my design work there. which is why I feel that air will be okay. My main use for the computer will be Papers... lots of papers... powerpoint, slight graphic work. internet, excel, and maybe watching some movies (internet or external hard drive). I like the idea of mobility but I am a big guy so the MBP wont kill me haha To summarize, I guess my main question is, will 128 SSD be too little for me? or should I be okay. Badass MBA vs badass MBP and just general opinions. REMEMBER this is all coming outta my pocket so being conservative is never a bad thing!
