    I'm definitely thinking of picking up a 13" MBPr sometime soon within the month, but I'm stuck in between the 128GB model and the 256GB model. I could easily store all my other information on an external drive if I end up running out of space, but does storage capacity affect system performance at all? Thanks!

    Generally, a smaller SSD performs slower.

    When it gets full, it may affect system performance.

    Best Buy has tax on all of its products so your total will be 1300 or +.

    You can get the same model at MacMall for $1,197 (free shipping and no tax)

    or at B&H for $1,199 (free shipping and no tax)

    or the 256gigs

    (These are also authorized Apple sellers)

    You can always store your media on a external hard drive (photos, music, movies) and keep your software on the Mac.

    Alright, I'll definitely take the larger 256GB into consideration. Thanks for all the responses!

    Yeah, I'm from Oregon so there shouldn't be any sales tax tagged along with the purchase.
