    debating between these 2 MBPs. Main use is audio production, Ableton live, recording and live performance

    2.6ghz 256GB SSD 450 Graphics - $2199
    2.7ghz 512GB SSD 455 Graphics - $2599

    If I get the 256GB I would store sample libraries on an external USB 3.0 SSD

    Which should I go for?

    For audio? I'd get the 2.6 config. But if budget is elastic I'd always buy up regardless.

    Adorama has the 512GB one for an additional $100 off, so it would cost me about $300 more to get the larger internal SSD. That may be worth it in the long run, even if the 2.7 455 won't make a noticeable improvement for audio work.

    Make sure you get 512, like the previous poster suggested. If your spending this much money that is a must. I have the 2.7GHZ 512, which I got for the price you mentioned.
