MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina Display: which one should I buy??

in Current Mac Hardware edited May 2015

As an aspiring music producer, I decided to buy a MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina Display (since it’s the only MacBook with 16GB RAM), but I see there are two models. The differences between them are:

1)      The processor (but I don’t think the user would be able to perceive any difference in speed because of this, do you agree??

2)      Storage: 256GB versus 512GB (!!)

I think storage is the only significant difference. But the option with more capacity is way more expensive.

Since I don’t think 256GB is enough to manage my music, should I buy the 256GB option and also buy an external drive, or do you think the 512GB option is worth the price?

Will I have any potential risks with an external drive? (I never used MacBook before).


Thank you so much!
