I have been looking for a while now at getting a MBP and now that the updates are here and people have had them in hand for a little bit I can't wait to get mine. I am now split between the rMBP and the MBP. My only main concern is the storage space on the new rMBP. I would really like to make the switch to SSD as the main failure point for my previous laptops has been the HDD. I currently have a couple of 1 TB USB 3 externals that I use for storing all of my movies and a backup of my music collection and other misc. software. But I only have a USB 2 laptop and have been away from my USB 3 desktop for months and have yet to see the performance benifits of USB 3. The only major thing I need space for on the local disk its self is a copy of Windows 7 either bootcamped or VMed. Gotta have it for a few apps and testing. I have almost switched entirely to Spotify on my laptop any way so I don't need that huge chunk of data on my local machine. I have also been using Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive more often but don't always have solid internet connections so I think of these as niceties that are great when you have then but not so much when you have no net. So my question comes down to this. With other storage options available out there, USB 3 externals and in the "cloud", has the 256GB limit been a problem for anyone out there? Also I know I could spend the extra money to get the upgraded rMBP, I don't know that I can budget out an extra ~$600 for more SSD storage. Thanks for the input guys!
