Sorry for linking to myself here, but since saying the MacBook Pro 13″ makes no sense I have had a deluge of emails and tweets. Two common arguments I am hearing are: RAM and storage space.

The RAM limitation is legitimate and 4GB versus 8GB is a huge difference. However I stand by this (which is what I am linking to) with regards to the storage space:

There is certainly a large contingent of Mac users that have an overwhelming amount of data storage needs, but if you fall in that group than I doubt that even a 500GB hard drive will suffice for you.

That’s to say that if you can’t get it done in 256GBs then you likely need more than 500GBs too.
