I am about to pull the trigger on a refurb'd 128 SSD MBA 13" (4GB ram). I want to use it as my primary computer. I have managed until now with a black Macbook as my primary. I am currently using 160GB of HD space on my macbook but I am resistant to pay $400 more just for the 256 SSD (vs 128). So, I ask you what strategy are people using to make it with 128GB? Here is my breakdown of what I think are the big HD hogs: Photos 50GB (i do not access these photos routinely and if easy, could migrate the iPhoto over to a tiny external HD) Documents: 16GB - I need these on the SSD Music: 18GB - I keep music on my iPhone and I don't sync the music that often, so if easy and not confusing for normal iPhone syncing (ie data/apps), I can migrate this to an ext HD Apps: only 8GB Movies: 1GB only Mail: 10GB I like to keep my mail contents local even though I use Gmail accounts. Is this a bad strategy? iPhone and iPad syncs/backups - not sure where this is kept (if I have a 16GB iPhone and 16GB iPad, is 32GB of "backup" space being consumed somewhere on my Mac HD? I doubt it, no? What else- ? What else is taking up all the drive space? I can't figure it out. So - Can I make it with 128GB easily, or is it going to be difficult and I should just pay the extra (outrageous) $400 for the extra 128GB of drive space? Thanks!!!
