Does anyone see why Apple would keep the 128 GB MBP around? I would hope they would start at 256GB and go up from there.

There is zero reason to have a base model with that little storage on a $1000+ machine. It's comically stupid.

No body wants 128GB unless you only install office apps on your laptop.....even phones get 128GB

Like I said in the other thread, if 128 GB is base, it will be an embarrassment for Apple. They may have courage but I don't think they have enough courage to crap on their own brand like that.

Unless you use it only for boring work stuff
unless you only install office apps on your laptop
no place on a laptop
Guuuuys, there are people who just don't work with media.

The largest chunks of data in my MacBook are Xcode (10 gigs), Wolfram Mathematica (6.7 gigs), Android Studio, IntelliJ IDEA and Affinity Photo. + 10 gigs of music and 10 gigs of some games (Minecraft and such).

Is my usage boring?

If you're boring, then im boring. My Mac has been sitting at 128GB of 250GB free for 6 years now. I have no clue how I would fill up 1TB.
