Macbook Pro Retina advice before purchase

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, Just want some opinions before i make a purchase on the newly updated macbook pro retina. I'm wondering which model to purchase. I'm getting the 13' but need some advice. Should I be getting the 128GB? Is it enough? I wont be doing any video editing or storing any images/video. Although I WILL be installing windows.

I wouldn't recommend 128GB but it depends on what you use Windows for. If it's for gaming, I'd suggest 70GB minimum now because modern games are maxing out at just under 50GB and a bare Windows OS uses up 15GB. If it's just for average software, you'd probably get away with 50GB.

Apple also has a refurb part to their store that has better prices:

If you were looking at the A$1599 model, you can get one with 512GB for A$1779:

The 256GB model is A$1439:

These machines have typically been used by someone but they always come like new, just in a brown box. They have the full warranty and you can get AppleCare too. They have limited stocks though.
