    I would go with 512 GB. I feel like 256 GB will not be enough internal storage in the long term.

    Should you require more than 512 GB you can always get an external drive at a later point, but 512 GB should last you a while.

    I agree 512's enough so you can keep a fair amount of video on there and roll less often used material out to like a 2TB archive external, whenever you want more new stuff on the laptop and don't have room.

    I would definitely go with Macbook Pro 15" - 512GB/16GB RAM, I think it would be long lasting user experience.

    An Apple refurbished MBP is almost indistinguishable from a new one.

    A factory new one with 512 GB would cost you €50 more than a refurbished one with 1 TB. Hard decision.

    I would go with the new one probably, just to have the brand-new-from-factory experience.

    I've always got the Apple-refurbs from their online store and enjoyed them for a long time each. Unbroken string so far since back in PowerPC days, even doubled down on the mid-2012 MBP w/ Apple care on it again in 2016 'cuz wanted to be able to have laptop w/ those ports and the optical drive for one more round... Great thing about the refurb experience is their eligibility for that extended coverage from time of purchase even on the older machines. My coverage on the mid-2012 expires this summer although I expect the machine will last me awhile longer and it's great that it runs Mojave..

    The next project for me is making the transition to the newer ones, will take the refurb route on those also but haven't really begun the homework towards making the purchase.

    thanks, I had the opportunity to try a refurbished macbook during the 14 days, and the MBP was scratched, obviously I asked for the refund ... my question is if I ask again or if it is new even if it is more expensive

    I have a 256GB storage rMBP (a 2013), and while it's enough for my uses, I do find myself having to be more aware of cleaning off "junk" than I'd like. My next laptop will have at least 512GB storage.

    Thanks to everyone I have finally chosen ...
    MACBOOK PRO 15 "/ Intel Core i7 six-core, 2.2 GHz, eighth generation (Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz) 512 GB
    16 GB DDR4 2400 MHz Radeon Pro 555X with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory
    € 3,039.00

    With a company discount of 6%, I have stayed at € 2932. I am going to try these 14 days, to see how I am commenting, but I think 1TB was over budget and I did not want to risk another reconditioned one.
