I know this topic has been beat to death, but I got to ask. I am all but ready to pull the trigger on the 2013 MBA i5/8gb ram. My only concern is the 128gb vs 256gb debate. I was originally all set on getting the 128gb. I have about 20gb of iTunes media and I do like taking photos on my DSLR (RAW Format). Keep in mind, I usually snap hundreds of photos but end up only keeping at most 10 good shots. The rest are usually trashed. Given my busy schedule, I'd be lucky to be able to take my camera out once a month. I recently stopped purchasing music on iTunes and have pretty much transitioned all my music listening to Spotify. This will be my primary machine. I will mainly be using it to surf the web and do some photo editing with Lightroom. I do not plan on gaming on this machine. I also do not plan on dual booting both Mac and Windows. I have a separate work laptop that satisfies my Windows needs. Now, back to my original point of me being set on getting the 128gb. My girl got the 2012 13" MBA 128gb for her bday last year. It's her primary machine as well. She has 2gb of audio, 23gb of movies, 5 gb of photos, 20 gb of apps and 70 gb of other. She has 1.93 gb free. I had her restart her laptop (she said she doesn't remember ever shutting down/booting up since she got it last year) and we re-checked the storage. She now has 13 gb free. Looking at her system got me concerned about the 128gb model. She uses the laptop to surf the web and Photoshop. She's not what I would consider a power user and she's struggling with storage. I am concerned that if I get the 128gb I will regret it very soon. I just have a really hard justifying the extra $200 for the 256gb. I would hate to purchase extra storage only to not use it. The extra $200 could go towards another product (Apple TV, maybe?). Just to put my situation more into perspective, I currently have a 16gb iPhone 4s. I plan on getting the iPhone 5s later this year (16 vs 32 gb will be another issue as I'm currently struggling with the 16gb). I also plan on getting an iPad mini whenever/if it gets the retina screen (32gb vs 64gb is another decision for me). Lastly, I plan on either getting Mac Mini w/ Thunderbolt display or iMac (no storage debate here, 1TB Fusion ) but this won't be late 2014 or even 2015. Given my potential setup, my girl's storage issue, and my usage, what does everyone think?
