    Hi

    I am buying a new macbook pro 13inch without touch bar tomorrow and was wondering if it's worth paying the extra to get the 256gb model? I will use it for streaming, web browsing, storing photos and videos and general day to day tasks.

    Your info and advice would be a great help thanks

    If you have an external hard drive for backup purposes then the 128 GB model should be sufficient, in my opinion.

    I can afford to get the 256gb model but was just seeing if it's necessary and if i can save some money then I will. Is there any other benefits to having 256gb? will it run smoother etc?

    No. It’s just additional storage and nothing more.

    What are you using as an external? If your using a hard drive like Seagate for example, I think a 128 should be fine because of the costs of the hard drive.

    If your using a SSD drive, Samsung T5 for 1 TB is running about $225 at Best Buy. Than the 256 might be better in the long run.

    Just remember. Hard drives have moving parts and are more prone to break on you if dropped. SSDs have a chip inside and might not break that easily.
