I am not sure how much logical my question is but I am planing to purchase MBP for the first time and looking at the options I have in place, I am all confused.
I am looking at these 2 options
- MacBook Pro with 1TB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm and 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM
- MacBook Pro 8GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 memory 128GB PCIe-based flash storage
there is some difference between the processor, but I am not much concerned with that.
I will be using the MBP for the development which includes a development editor (Eclipse), a tomcat server and some other tools.
My only concern is about the Storage as with the second option, it seems to be quite on the lower side.
Can any one suggest me what is the other difference between these 2 MBP (other than Retina display) which can be critical in taking the decision (with the fact that I will be using it for development most of the time).
