For those who use a MBPx as main computer, interested in hearing about your setup. I'm getting into upgrade mode and considering macbook pro (e.g. probably waiting for next gen which I'm guessing will be limited to the retina). If I went with the MBPr, the idea would be to use it as my main computer (e.g. replace my older MB and iMac). Currently, using 400G+ range in terms of storage; quit a-bit of that in media, but expecting that to grow Main usage: usually web access, word-processing activities, FaceTime, iTunes library (e.g. streaming to AppleTV and syncs with iPad), photos, home movies, misc. development (e.g. not primary dev platform, research of technologies, design documentation, ), . So, given you have similar requirements . What does you setup look like? For example... - docking station (e.g. Thunderbolt Display, wireless keyboard; external drive, external optical, any non-TB Display examples)? - given a smaller SSD drive, how do you handle media (e.g. external HDD, swapping in/out media files, etc.)? - given your using external HDD for primary storage; do you have second external HDD for Time Machine backups? - do you serve your iTunes library (e.g. wake MBPr upon Network access)? As I write this, I think I'm talking myself out of the MBPr; maybe an iMac and a low-end MB Air for full-OS portability needs. Am I wrong?
