i'm not really a tech shabby guy, so please bear with me on my ignorance. Right now, I have a macbook air < 2012 > and honestly I've been killing for a reason to upgrade ( going to college in the august!). Its a 64GB and its awfully low on space, battery life is awful, and is running slow. I've purchased clean my mac and run it daily to clear my caches and I've even deleted a few of my backups for my iPhone to make space to function. Right now the usage looks like this: 60.7GB Flash Storage 24.9GB Other 12.86GB Audio 9.34GB apps 1.94GB Photos 1.46 Movies 1.8mb Backups 8.96GB Free --- I have a lot of music from my disc collection that I really want to transfer them to my iPhone but I can't because I simply do not have enough space. I also have a lot of photos on my iPhone that I don't transfer to not take up space. Similarly I have a movies that would nice to have on my iPhone. I'm honestly think that I could easily hit 20GB in music. I also save all my files from pages & numbers on iCloud but I'm also about to hit the 5GB on that to! I'm considering two options right now. Upgrading to a macbook pro 128GB and possibly buying and external drive or buying the 258GB macbook Air. I really want to macbook pro because its processor and Ram is better then the macbook air but I would only be able to afford the 128GB. I use the internet on my macbook air now and leave some of the other functions like gaming and other functions on a desktop, I won't have access to this in college! I probably won't be gaming in college but I would like to be able to use Microsoft word, powerpoint, etc. all while internet browsing without experience lagging. So guys, any input?? Macbook Pro ( might buy a external drive ) or 258GB macbook air???
