    Hi everyone I just bought a 13 in 2015 entry retina 128gb 8gb ram this week for school as my secondary computer. I got a great deal on it and since its really my secondary computer I have a desktop pc i built I figured I can save money by buying the 128gb.

    My question is I bought it 4 days ago installed el capitan and updated everything 2 days ago. Now I have literally just been using word and excel for some assignments but my disk space keeps going down by like .1 or .2 that it has dropped about 2 gigs from yesterday. I have 88.92 gigs right now. Does that seem normal? I don't plant on using it for anything else so I should run out of disk space but why does it drop? I have pictures of everytime i checked and its all going into the other section. Is this something I should be worried about?

    No you should not be worried. I have this same computer and love it. If you haven't rebooted in a while do so and this will clear your sleep image and swap files. Also, download Onyx and run it once in a while, that should net you a little more space.
    I keep all my pictures and music on a Jetdrive and it works great. A company called BASEQI makes a MicroSD adapter for about $25 and you can add your own MicroSDXC memory card for a little piece of mind.

    Thanks I actually realized after restarting that it would go up by a couple gigs then go back down but nothing crazy. I love the rmbp Idk why I didnt pull the trigger earlier this year!
