Hi! I'm pretty excited to be buying my first MacBook soon (I also just got approved for $2,000 financing with Barclay's, which was quite a surprise). I know I definitely want the 13", but am conflicted on whether I should pay the extra $200 for the 256 GB vs. the 128 GB. The budget that I've set is around $1,300. I am waiting until the tax free day in my state to buy. I will also get the student discount, which will be $100, from what I understood from the Apple employee. So that will put me at $999 for the 128 and $1,199 for the 256. I also would like the Apple Care (btw, would you encourage others to get this or no? Seems like it makes sense to me, but am not 100%). I will get 30% off that too apparently, costing $175. So that will be $1,374 for the 256 or $1,174 for the 128, so obviously over the budget I set for myself for the 256. But considering it's only $74 more than I wanted to spend, I want to know, how much it would really matter to me to have double the amount of GB. Now, I really get confused with the whole 4GB memory and 128/256GB flash storage. I'm going to be using this computer for pretty basic, casual things (i.e. browsing, watching shows/movies, documents, small amount of music/pictures). So I'm just having a hard time sorting out whether the extra flash storage would be advantageous enough for me to spend an extra $200. If anyone would be willing to give their opinion, that would be extremely helpful! Would just like to hear people's thoughts, or maybe what they decided on.
