I'm looking into buying a used 15 2.2 that has an Apple 128GB SSD. My music library is about 13GB's, and i'll need that constantly on my laptop. I have about 2GB of photos that I'll want on there (that is all I have). And I can keep my video (tv/movies/raw hd footage from camcorder) on my 500GB external HD. I realize that the OS (Lion) is 4GB. I'll want a couple heavy programs such as Final Cut X, Aperture, Microsoft Office Professional and a few browsers and the like. It looks like Final Cut is 4GB in application size and 55GB of other content I can keep on an external hard drive. So now I'm up to 23GB, add a few GB's of documents/PDF's/Misc. and your at ~30GB. My question is can I live with a 128GB SSD for most of my (portable) time and then attach my external HDD when I want to use it for watching movies/tv? Otherwise, what is keyboard wear like on these laptops? And he says it doesn't come with iLife, aren't all Macs installed with iLife? I'm asking him to send me a screenshot of his coconut battery. This is a really tough decision for me, plus, the free ipod deal hasn't started yet and some think it won't start, which means that it could add $200 to the price for me if I buy one new, I just need to figure out if I can live with a 128GB SSD. Can I swap out the Apple SSD for a HDD later on and do an optibay setup? I like that Momentus X hybrid drive. Please help, I want to make a decision soon.
