    I just got a good deal on a new 2014 base Macbook Pro 13". The only concern I have with it is the storage space...

    So for those who own a 128GB, do you feel limited?

    I have a few external HDDs for my media... but I still want some media on the Macbook.

    Another option for me would be to get the late 2013 256GB refurb for ~$100 more, but I already spent more on this computer than I would of loved.

    I need your opinions, thanks! :confused:

    I think its tight - too tight. In this day and age of growing file sizes, its best not to cut corners and leave too little space on a brand new computer.

    There are portable storage options. Some even wireless that you could stow in a laptop bag. If you do go ahead and get the extra storage you will improve the resale value as well so it might be a good investment.

    I didn't think that it would affect the resale value due to the fact that the 128gb is new and a 2014 model compared to a refurb 256gb 2013 model (even though the hardware specs are identical except for the storage space)

    Depends on your usage. A lot of people 128GB is enough, it's those that have a lot of media or software that can run into trouble.
