So I just order my first macbook pro. I have a few questions on setting it up: My data is too large to fit on a 128 GB SSD, so I ordered an external hard drive. I was thinking about keeping the home folder on the SSD, but using symlinks to put my music, picture, and video folders on the external hard drive. I read a couple of threads on how to do that, but I was wondering if I would have any problems if I disconnect the external hard drive from my computer. I do not want to have the hard drive connected all the time. Also, I do not want to do the optibay mod. Is microsoft office in the Mac App Store? Do you guys recommend anything else or have some tips?
