Hey everyone! I'm about to get a new MacBook Pro, and there's one problem I need a little help solving. I could either get a 500gb 7200rpm HDD at no extra charge, OR I could get a 128gb SSD for an additional $90. I'm slightly leaning towards the SSD for the general reasons you've all probably heard about by now. Now let me just explain my reasoning here a bit. I should say beforehand that I already plan on getting a 1TB external USB drive, regardless of which internal drive I get. So space isn't really the issue. From what I understand, if I were to buy the MBP with the 500gb HDD and just buy an SSD separately, that would total me around $220 (the price of a 128gb SSD nowadays). However, if I were to buy the laptop with the SSD and then buy a 500 gb HDD at 7200 rpm, it would cost me $90 + $70 = $160. So I'd be saving money by buying the SSD with the MBP it seems, not even counting the fact that I could sell the SSD for a higher price than what I actually bought it for! I know it sounds like I might already have my answers, but I basically have three questions: 1) Does that argument make sense to you? As in, is there anything I'm missing or not considering? 2) Does anyone know what brand of SSD Apple ships in MBP nowadays? 3) I was planning on using my SSD for the OS/applications, and using the 1TB HDD for files/music/movies etc. Is that an ideal setup or is there something I'm missing about that as well? I'd appreciate any helpful answers. Thanks!
