Hi everyone. I'm looking to purchase a new 27-inch machine but opting to upgrade to SSD to give it some extra speed, I'm just having difficulty deciding which size to go for. This machine will be replacing a mid-2011 27-inch iMac which has a broken logic board. So rather than pay to repair it, I'm putting the money towards a new one instead. My uses aren't heavy duty by any means, and I'm quite happy to store videos, music and photos on an external disk. I will however be doing moderate gaming on it, as well as installing Windows (probably a partition of around 80GB) and various other applications required for my usage. The price differential is £211.20 with student discount, which I could easily invest in a solid external storage solution, the computer will not be moved around so the portability of such a solution wouldn't be an issue. So I effectively have 2 questions. Is 256GB enough for the average user these days, or would I struggle and have to constantly juggle applications around? Secondly, does anybody have experience with having to rely on an external drive to store the majority of their files, and is there any major inconveniences/slowdowns involved with doing so? Thank you very much.
