Hello Mac rumors. been lurking forever, but finally decided to join and register. I'm currently in need of a macbook or computer in that case. My daily tasks handled on my old laptop gone bad are, or were, Photoshop, and a little bit of after affects. I usually do a lot of photo manipulation. Some minor gaming, but not severe. Streaming online. Not really a pack rat with storage usage overly compiling saving, photos, videos and such. My question(s) arises, when it comes to ssd storage, since it is faster than hdd. Does having a sufficient or large free storage space effect on performance speed, or is the speed the same as having 80% of storage used. Is there any advantage to having a 1tb flash ssd to a 256gb flash ssd other than the space space advantage, speed wise. I obviously want to get a macbook pro 13" I'm looking at rmbp with 3.1ghz i7 16gb ram 256 GB Or rmpbp 3.1 ghz i7 16gb ram 128gb Or rmbp 3.1 ghz i7 16gb ram 512gb Or rmbp 2.9 ghz i5 8gb ram 1tb Flash storage. Having 1tb ssd have any significant performance increase with the i5 and 8gb ram? Instead with the other combinations? Any advice is fully appreciated.
