I'm not sure if an aftermarket solution would be cheaper. The OWC 480GB (not even 512GB) blade SSDs for the Macbook Air (similar in type to the new MBP), $759 or $795 depending on the model. The 512GB model MBP is $600 more and includes a faster processor as well.Seeing it's upgradeable. I would hold out until OWC has it available and you can just buy it from them for cheaper. It all depends on how much space you need.
For some 256gb is more than enough with an external HD. Some may need the 512 or even the 756gb SSD.
Yeah, one more option would make the poll much longer and much more complicated.Because these are the two options most will go for, and I wanted to keep it short and simple.
Yeah, after taking a second look...your right. OWC needs to get their price down a bit if they really expect people to purchase those upgrades. So i guess the $600 would be well worth it.
