    this September i will start sixth form and i need a laptop. after looking at all the apple laptops i decided i wanted the 13" MacBook Pro with retina display.

    as i will be using my laptop to do work in school everyday should i get the:

    128 GB storage laptop or the 256 GB storage laptop.

    the subjects i will be doing are quite creative aswell and i will be using my laptop every day of the week to do school work

    the reason i am asking is i don't know how big a 128 GB storage is (because if it is quite big, storage wise, then i will be buying it)
    thanks

    No-one needs a laptop/MacBook for school. Don't waste money on larger drives, just get external storage.

    You dont need it, but it was probably the most useful thing i had! Saved so much time!

    1) Macs are ****
    2) You dont need a laptop for 6th form
    3) Just get the lowest memory one and get an external hard drive if you REALLY want to waste your money buying a laptop
